Gerry is a documentary filmmaker who, one day each year, follows five children around with a camera. He shows the results annually on television. Yet for the children who grow up under Gerry's (and the nation's) watchful eye, the experience creates its own dynamic. Are the participants his subjects, his children, or his creations? What responsibility does a storyteller have, to his subjects, his audience, and himself? How much does Gerry take? Does the presence of the camera distort the lives it is supposed to be capturing? Spanning more than twenty years, this play invites you into a world of fractured celebrity and distorted vision. (5 male, 4 female).

'He [Enright] has gone further than just doing Seven UP. He's exploring their lives, the relationship between them and the documentary makers and what follows o from it all. I venture to say its' the best modern play I've done in many many years.' George Ogilvie (Director)
