365 – List Feature

365The official line is that the actors playing the teenagers leaving residential care homes, whose interlinked lives make up the meat of 365 are ‘mostly aged between 16 and 24’, but well over half of them have already graduated. I sit down with Helen Mallon, best known for her work in NTS flagship show The Wolves in the Walls, fiercely intelligent newcomer Simone James, brought up from London for this production, and

Ashley Smith, whose expressionless, lovely features are currently slapped all over the publicity for the show.

Possibly because I’ve half-convinced myself they’re all teenagers, I’m initially surprised at their articulacy and the depth of their knowledge. But then, they’ve been hired for it.
