A Fool's Proof archiveTrapped in a well shaft for 56 hours, a little girl waits to be found. Above ground, three journalists chase the story every step of the way, framing it for media consumption and spinning it wildly, erratically and erroneously away from the truth. Inspired by true events, this tale searches for answers and scatters accusations as the rescue mission struggles on. A Fool's Proof takes inspiration from the true story of Jessica McClure, who at 18 months old was trapped for 56 hours in a water well in Midland, Texas in 1987. In the midst of the media's current obsession with 'missing child' stories, Scratchworks uses sharp new writing, imaginative tomfoolery and earthy folk music to scrutinise the media's editorial power over public perception.
