Synopsis


A show about caring.


“Really it would be cheaper for the tax payer if all the babies in care died and we paid for each one of them to have a horse-drawn funeral carriage”.


Becca leaves the office at 8.56am.


Uniform is waiting.


They speed across the city, blues and twos blaring, on the trail of a missing woman.


This is like a police drama!


Except Becca is a social worker, and they never put social workers in police dramas.


Budgets across councils are at breaking point, making a difficult job increasingly impossible.


Demand is high, wages are low, and burnout is common.


Based on research, interviews and testimonial, Left My Desk is a play about social care in England today, exploring the crisis unfolding throughout our system.
