“I used to lose things. So I bought a container and then another and then another and now I don’t lose things.”
How do you grieve someone’s loss when your only hope is for their return?
A young boy is separated from his mother and goes missing in Disneyland. Adrift in the artificial world of giant mice and noisy parades, no-one can account for what happened in the seven frantic hours before he’s found. Years later his life seems normal, but something about that day haunts him; something remains unresolved. And then, he disappears again…
Inspired by a real event, this lyrical and provocative play explores the infinite unknowns surrounding missing persons and the fog which engulfs those left behind.
“Without a doubt, this is the best new play of this country in a long while…that cuts into our cultural prejudice and unresolved gender assumptions…That it is also poetic and rich and moving renders it unmissable.” ★★★★ – Time Out, on Philpott & Campbell’s The Trouble with Harry
