As the memories of former patients collide violently with her own, a child psychologist attempts to record what she’s spent her whole life trying to forget.

But as Time loosens it’s grip, and her recording equipment begins to argue back, we hear the inner workings of a mind on the brink of collapse.

With a microphone shaped like the human head and an audience with wireless headphones on, vivid soundscapes and whispered memories wash over the audience as they try to puzzle together the missing pieces of an almost forgotten life.

‘What we never really understood is that we shouldn’t have recorded what they remembered. We should have recorded what was forgot. It‘s in those gaps where the life lives.’

Based on collected testimony from Age UK community groups, Thrown is a sensory and cinematic reverie on conciousness, written by multi-award-winning playwright, Jodi Gray.
