Devised by Curious Directive, co-presented by house
A coming-of-age thriller exploring the fragility of the childhood imagination. Audiences experience the 1995 storyline using VR headsets, in this ground-breaking Virtual Reality-live theatre hybrid from the boundary-pushing curious directive.
A hit at the Theatre Royal, Norwich in the summer, we’re thrilled to be able to present this show for you at the Corn Hall.
It’s 2018. A police officer arrives at Meera’s coral laboratory. Meera is interrogated about Ashleigh Richardson, a 13-year-old girl who went missing in 1995.
It’s 1995. Meera is eleven. It’s her first sleepover with her best friends, Lily and Shaun. Cassette recordings from the radio and Sega Mega Drive distract them from theories about Ashleigh’s disappearance. Outside, on the Great Barrier Reef, police divers are on a search-and-rescue mission by torchlight.
