One Minute

Delirium Theatre, 2016

In a tender, fragmentary story about the inarticulacy of grief, this 2003 play by Olivier and Tony award-winning playwright, Simon Stephens, looks at the different lives touched by the investigation into a missing girl. Incorporating a cinematic score, video and puppetry, DELIRIUM create an ever-moving London that plays backdrop to five lives that are standing still.

Returning to London with their sixth major production and following the sold out 5* run of From Where I’m Standing at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013, DELIRIUM have picked up a previously produced play for the first time in their history.

As a company focused on exploring the intricacies of human behaviour One Minute presents this challenging story with delicacy and tenderness and ultimately a sense of hope
