Basic details
Project information
Please give a concise description of the activity you are asking us to support.
Our project is a 15-minute piece of theatre that explores the initial 15 minutes after a child goes missing. We will be exploring the reactions of
the people closest to the child and look at the way different people respond to tragedy. We aim to challenge our audience and make them
think about/ question what they would do if they found themselves in that situation as we are aiming to make people aware of child
negligence and how easy it can be for a child to slip under the radar. The story was inspired by events personal to a member of the company,
because of this we are pushing ourselves to produce the most honest and real piece of work we can. The piece is based in real time so we, as
actors, need to convey the exact and ever-changing emotions of the characters as they search for the child. Hopefully, by setting it in real time,
the audience will feel more connected to the characters and understand them more easily. It will hopefully make things feel more intense as
the audience will be acutely aware of how little time the characters have to find the child. Our project involves working with/ performing to
low income and/or less educated families within a theatre environment to raise awareness of child negligence. We will be performing in two
theatres and want to offer a Q&A session after the piece to answer any questions people might have on the topic or the performance, as well
as this we will provide links to the relative charities and support lines for those who feel the need to take this issue further.

Artistic quality
What is your proposed artistic activity, and what do you want to achieve by doing it?
No more than 1500 words.
We propose to perform a 15-minute piece of theatre about the first 15 minutes after a child goes missing. We want to explore the reactions of the family
and look at how each character responds in that situation (basing these responses as close to real life responses as possible, drawing from first hand
experiences to looking at news stories). We hope to raise awareness of child negligence. The piece follows a family on a picnic trip and will begin as the
child is lost and will follow the family right up to the arrival of the police. This is an important topic, as child negligence is reoccurring in today’s society, so
we want to make people aware of this issue, so they can avoid it and prevent it themselves.
We want to tackle this topic because we want people to see the risks of neglect, and the importance of constant care of young children; this is a topic rarely
covered and parent responsibility is often brushed over in media. We want to improve child safety by making people aware of the risks of neglect, we feel
that it is an every day issue that is rarely touched upon in the news unless it is an extreme case. It is also important to make parents to appreciate the
importance of their children and their care. We want to show this through presenting a realistic and honest story that can engage an audience with it’s
believable and relatable characters that end up in a situation that would distress anyone who finds themselves in it. At the most intense points we want the
audience to be so engaged that they are feeling the panic of the characters and at its most quiet we want them to feel the mounting dread, even once the
police are informed we want the audience to feel terrified and useless as they – like the characters – aren’t in control.
