One Minute

By Simon Stephens
Barn Theatre
19 May - 16 June 2018

"When you close your eyes and think about your home, what do you think about?"

A young girl has disappeared. On the case is Robert Evans; new to the police force, and his cynical colleague Gary Burroughs. But as the victim's mother, Dr Anne Schults, wants to know, when does "missing" become "presumed dead"? In a crowded city where everyone's a stranger, who do you look to for support?


Simon Stephens' play is a disquieting portrait of the many lives that are united in the single moment it takes for a child to disappear. Using state-of-the-art lighting and projection, each character gets the chance to tell their own tale of loss, longing and isolation in the modern urban sprawl.

"A slick revival"
