About prism

Storm is four years old, nearly five, and is about to go to school for the very first time. But which school?

Mum wants Storm to come join her in LA; Dad wants her to live with him in Forres; and her Mum’s PA thinks Storm should stay with her in Switzerland. No one has asked Storm what she wants.

Mum, Dad, and Tzeporah will put their cases to a children’s panel - but each of them have a different point of view of events so far. You’ll hear the evidence - and then you decide.

A twisty turny story about love, self-love, and selflessness; or is it?

Written by emerging Scottish playwright Claire Wood, prism is the latest online play from cutting edge theatre company Production Lines. Performed online, audiences will act as the panel, hearing the arguments from three different perspectives to decide Storm’s fate. Using the chat and voting function within the online venue, the audience can choose which version of the story they would like to hear at each performance.

Memory is subjective, and the three characters within the play each have their own version of events. prism explores how different perspectives can make us see and feel differently - creating different versions of the same story every night.

prism is the second interactive theatre piece from Production Lines, following on from 2021’s roulette, which was named runner up for the Innovate Award from The Scottish Emerging Theatre Awards 2021. roulette was an online dating show in which the audience were given the power to pair the couples together determining the course of the story.
