The Unseen Child





14 October 2023

No items found.


Once there was a young prince, who was master of all he surveyed. His parents doted on him, until one day, everything changed.

A strange mood fell across the kingdom, and the prince was no longer the apple of their eye . . . storm clouds gathered, and slowly the prince became . . . invisible.

The Unseen Child is the story of a young carer, who escapes his daily life through fantasy worlds and battling mythical beasts in a quest to keep his family together.

Weaving together the fantastical stories and real life experiences shared by Carer Support Furness – Young Carers, Theatre Factory has created a show about the voiceless in our community.

Told through, puppetry, animation and performance, The Unseen Child gives voice to the often hidden but vital role young carers play in society.

Performed at Hindpool Community Centre, Nelson Street, Barrow in Furness, LA14 1NF on
14 October 2023 at 2 pm and 7.30 pm

What the Audience said about the performance

I thought it would be melodramatic and gloomy. Instead, very clever, funny and moving

I found it very emotional, revealing and full of love

Absolutely beautiful, such a nice story, the acting and the message were really powerful
