“He looked the same as anyone else. Any of the other ones who come in. White boys. So I didn’t clock anything different, cos there wasn’t anything different. How was I meant to know?”

Shajenthran’s brother has had acid thrown in his face and Shaj is out for revenge. Danielle’s teenage crush on a pop idol develops into an illicit relationship, ‘professional mentoring’ becoming something much darker. June has spent twenty years serving the private needs of the super wealthy, but her new assignments confront her with the questions she’s spent a lifetime running from.

When their paths cross it is not something any of them will forget. Filled with love, coercion, loneliness and obsession, Little Echoes takes you through the city as you’ve never seen it before. A city of deep shadows, darker intentions, and where anything can change in the night…

Little Echoes was written by Tom Powell, winner of the OTR National Radio Drama Award, Footlights’ Harry Porter Prize, and shortlisted for the Soho Young Writers Award* and directed by Stephen Bailey (European Theatre Convention Scholar 2018). Produced by Pentire Street Productions (Winner of The Innovation Award for ‘Rubber’, VAULT Festival 2018)
