The new play by the Royal Court's writer-in-residence




"When you close your eyes and you think about your home, what do you think about?"

Robert Evans is new to the police force, and his enthusiasm for the case is keener than that of his cynical colleague Gary Burroughs. They're both looking for a missing child. But as the mother, Dr Anne Schults, wants to know, when does "missing" become "presumed dead"? Simon Stephens' new play is a disquieting portrait of the many lives that are united in the single moment it takes for a child to disappear.
Praise for Simon Stephens:

"A major new voice in British Theatre" - Scotsman; "Herons is filled with a sense of life's miraculous potential. It deals with damaged characters yet is imbued with a poetic lyricism" - Guardian

Stephens has gone on to write such major pieces as 'Harper Regan' and 'Pornography' ... 'One Minute' shares something with the latter in that once again we get a sense of London's vast size and of lonely people briefly brushing against each other as they try to find themselves.
