A family is torn apart by the death of Evie Roberts.
Evie has gone missing. Her family make a plea in a TV interview for her to come home.
A police officer appears at their door and informs the family that she has been found dead. This tragic revelation takes the story into the private lives of each family member and how their behaviours may have implicated Evie’s death. Each of them feel the burden of her death: they have a responsibility, something they did or something they didn’t do to help her when she most needed it. Is it a case of crocodile tears or genuine heart break?
Emily Bradshaw and Joe Plumb collaborate with local musicians to create this hard-hitting and poignant show that challenges the audience to think about how they support young people battling with mental health, and how easy it can be to overlook the issues people within your own family - even if they live in the same house as you.
