The world is shit. You’re stuck in your room.
You get onto Zoom. You meet Charlie, who’s been in her room her whole life. She doesn’t know she’s stuck.
You’re the first person she’s ever encountered from the outside world.
You have 15 minutes.
If your words were the only thing a 12-year old could hang on to in this maddening world, what would you say to her?
Warning: Contains high level of audience participation
Whatever one might want to call it – play, interactive game, parallel reality – ‘Charlie’ opened a series of interrogatives in me I am still trying to answer, pushing the boundaries of theatre towards a completely unexpected direction and undoubtedly offering a once in a lifetime experience I am extremely glad to have had.”

I know this is a performance, but still, it was nice to have carved a little safe space to have a conversation that went nowhere. - Arts Republic
