‘Although Rose’s Mum is gone, the earth keeps spinning. School pressure builds, her Dad keeps struggling and she keeps caring. Guided and inspired by the memory of her Mum, Rose begins a quest to find the happiness in the world again. Step by step, the path becomes clearer. Every Rose blooms in it’s own time.’
A heartfelt production exploring grief and the pressures that Young Carers face on a daily basis.
About the show
This stunning physical theatre show brought together a cast of Young Carers in Salford as well as professional actors and musicians. The dynamic physical story telling used puppetry, shadow work, movement and live music to bring this moving and powerful story to life. Young Carers performed on stage, many for the first time, multi rolling and playing instruments live on stage. The professional cast were seamlessly integrated throughout the piece to reflect the true nature of the collaborative, creative process where young people take the lead.
Performed at The Lowry in March 2019.
