Duration: 1 hour

Scotland is on the cusp of change. In September 2014, the population of Scotland, including 16- and 17-year-olds for the first time, must decide whether or not they want their country to be independent. With apathy and infighting amongst the adult electorate, how is a teenager to decide? Now's the Hour follows a group of teenagers as they join Scottish Youth Theatre to create and stage a play which aims to help them prepare as they approach what could be the biggest political decision of their lives.
