Twice WINNERS of the NSDF Emerging Artist Award and BEST ENSEMBLE Offie Nominated 2017.
Lost Watch are a New Diorama Theatre Associate Ensemble.
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.
