LEFT MY DESK
Becca leaves the office at 8.56am. Uniform is waiting. They speed across the city, blues and twos blaring, on the trail of a missing woman.
This is like a police drama!
Except Becca is a social worker, and they never put social workers in police dramas.
Budgets across councils are at breaking point, making a difficult job increasingly impossible. Demand is high, wages are low, and burnout is common. Based on research, interviews and testimonial, Left My Desk is a play about social care in England today, exploring the crisis unfolding throughout our system.
Left My Desk is available for national and International touring. To see our tour pack, or enquire about the show, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
