Walking Forward’s production of Never Saw The Day tours the UK and Europe, playing to schools, colleges and British Forces.
Aimed at the 16+ age group, James, Kaz, Lee, Steph and Vince are a group of friends enjoying all that life has to offer. A romance is blossoming, careers are planned, until a tragic accident blights all of their lives. A belligerent attitude towards car driving and passenger responsibility becomes the catalyst for this thought provoking drama.
The performance is dedicated to those who have suffered as a result of a road traffic accident and will continue to suffer until society realises the tragic game it plays in the quest for speed and convenience. Based on a true story, the play examines the repercussions of an RTA and highlights levels of responsibility for passengers and drivers.
With humour and high drama, Never Saw the Day follows the lives of five friends from their local football match, the café, to practicing for their first gig at the local pub.
Even the most hardened, streetwise, non-theatre going audiences are moved from laughter to tears in a naturalistic and powerful piece of theatre. The content and style is televisual and episodic in it’s format and complements not only the important work of Road Safety Units but also is a useful addition to Drama studies within schools and Colleges.
