The winner of the fifth Papatango New Writing Prize in partnership with the Finborough Theatre....

Tom spends all his days surfing the net...

Because Tom works in child protection.

Faced with watching recordings of the most unforgivable crimes on a daily basis, in a job that barely anyone else can endure, Tom struggles to retain his humanity. Meeting Emily might just mean his life has changed for the better, but when your entire working life is spent watching the most terrible of crimes, can you ever go home and say “I love you”?

It is estimated that there are 50,000 – 60,000 regular viewers of child pornography in the UK alone. With reports of footage of abuse rising by 42% in the last six months, Unscorched examines the impact on those analysts confronting such footage every day.

Tackling an important and taboo subject with sensitivity, humour and courage, and chosen from more than 500 entries to win this year's Papatango New Writing Prize, Luke Owen’s first play reveals a dramatist of exceptional promise.
