About the Show/Event
Information for Who Cares? at Cast, Doncaster (Play). A gripping verbatim theatre production based on a year of interviews that offers a rare insight into a year in the lives of three young carers from Salford. The play, which was commissioned by The Lowry in partnership with Salford Young Carers Service, is the culmination of more than a year's research and interviews with young people by verbatim theatre specialists, LUNG. Stories include a nine-year-old girl who became the full-time carer to her father after he was paralysed in a car crash, and a seven-year-old boy who, while struggling with his schoolwork, provided more than 20 hours a week care to his mum and younger sister at home.
