Unscorched

Unscorched

by Luke Owen

A courageous and convincing play that sensitively tackles the important subject of child abuse. Tom works in child protection, as an archivist in digital forensics. Faced with watching recordings of the most unforgivable crimes on a daily basis, in a job that barely anyone else can endure, he struggles to retain his humanity. Meeting Emily might just mean his life has changed for the better - but when your entire working life is spent watching horrific past crimes, how do you love in the present?
