The plays are immersive and immediate, transporting you inside the story. Each is unique to its location and invites you to experience a familiar route from a new perspective. Through narration and original music blended with the sights and sounds around you, Walk This Play® takes you on a journey of imagination and discovery.

Sorry I Disappeared has been created as a Walk This Play® experience for Derby.

You said you needed a new start…
So this is it, Derby, an alternative history.

Elle disappeared, again. Her brother, Kay, has traced her to Derby. He discovers the hidden messages she’s left him around the city, like an Easter egg hunt or trail of breadcrumbs.

Elle’s been pretty creative with the truth, so grab your headphones and listen in to her unique take on the world around you.
