Lost Text/Found Space was founded in 2017 to further our longstanding commitment to explore unperformed text through bold site-based theatre. We are particularly interested in championing works by unknown female minority writers, all of which we believe deserve and can find an audience today. As part of our ethos, we are also committed to active engagement with the local communities we work alongside, and to broadening the demographic reach of our plays.

Til We Meet in England takes Elizabeth Inchbald’s rarely performed tragedy, The Massacre, as its starting point. With themes of mob-thinking, scapegoating, and a profound sense of humanism, it is a play which is rich with contemporary resonance, offering a long view of Britain as a place of refuge. Inchbald adapted the play in 1792 in response to atrocities in France in the wake of the French Revolution. Inchbald chose to censor the play until after her death. For her, the play’s intense action and violent language, by no means shocking in the age of mass media, were too horrid for audiences of the time to bear. Our empathy and relationship to suffering today is one that we also explore through this play. The production at Safehouse places the audience in a tiny, domestic house with the family at the heart of Inchbald's play. The narrative unfurls around them, part-performance, part-installation, fusing text, movement and song to create a potent, intimate experience.
