 New stretch target

Wow! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, we cannot send enough thanks your way! You are helping us to share an important story at one of the world's greatest arts festivals! 

As a result of the amazing support so far we have added a stretch target. Helping us reach this second target will ensure that we are able to extend our budget on certain important aspects of the project. This includes marketing, ensuring that we can reach as many people as possible, set/props and costume, allowing us to purchase items which may have been slightly out of our budget range, and ensuring that this project remains accessible to everyone. 

Thank you so much for supporting this project and we hope to share updates with you over the coming months as we journey from Exeter to Edinburgh!

The play

‘It’s not everyday the corpse gets a spot on the investigation team.’

Rebecca has been labelled the miracle girl after waking from her own murder. There’s just one problem. She can only remember the last words said to her before she died. Struggling with her loss of identity and the truth of what happened, these memories may just help piece it altogether. But memories can sometimes be twisted. Convinced her boyfriend has something to do with it, Rebecca learns some shocking secrets about her family and her own past self that challenge everything. Who should Rebecca trust and what if some things are best left forgotten?

Note: The play explores themes of mental health, including Dissociative Identity Disorder. The creatives and cast members have worked closely with a Disability Advisor and System to ensure care is taken through representation. A research pack has been made available and created for the Company, which is available on request and will be released through the production's social media.
