What happens to a missing person? Who knows the real story? Seven years after a girl from their school went missing her classmates are getting on with their lives. As they bump into each other in pubs and supermarket car parks, at funerals and weddings, they speculate about what happened. But somewhere in the many voices of the community a voice begins to emerge which may know the true story. This multistranded performance weaves together the many stories of a community around a missing person and draws parallels with the life of Jackson C Frank, songwriter of Blues Run The Game.

“When I think of his soul. That’s what I see. A man on fire walking slowly and peacefully through the dark desert night, waiting to burn out and disappear.”
