When you’re only sixteen, could the events of one night really shape the course of your life? Divert you from becoming the man you might have become, stunt you, burden you, trap you, destroy you, change the very core of you?

In Cathy Forde's Empty the colloquial and dialogue-driven writing explores themes relevant to the lives of teenagers: fitting in with demanding mates; desiring the undesirable and the unobtainable; and severely fractured relations with parents.

Commissioned by the National Theatre of Scotland as an initiative to encourage younger audiences into the theatre Empty premiered at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow, on 12 March 2010 before embarking on a national tour of Scotland including a number of exclusive performances for schools, youth groups and colleges March -April 2010.
