Ten years on from 9/11, a generation of actors and writers brought up on fear will mark this anniversary with an urgent response to the unfolding drama in North Africa, the Middle East and Middle England.
UK students try their hand at anarchy while young Arabs fight for the right to protest and are willing to die for their cause. From an Arab Spring to another UK Winter of Discontent; the latest battle in the war on terror is coming to a department store near you.
In 2010, the National Youth Theatre and Shine TV teamed up to launch a writing competition aimed at developing new talent for the theatre and television.
Called Write to Shine, the competition was open to people aged 17 to 30, and run in conjunction with charity IdeasTap.
For Our Days of Rage, the winners of that competition will combine forces to plot an explosive drama for our time, leading audiences on a riotous journey through the cavernous 2,500 square metres of the Old Vic Tunnels through protests past, present and future.
