Something that might make the world a better place? Alex can't remember his mother's voice. Searching opens a can of worms. Luca asks, can we become memory champions? Director: Annie Rigby (Putting The Band Back Together). Writer: Luca Rutherford. Songwriter: Paul Smith (Maxïmo Park). Sounds: Mariam Rezaei. Choreographer: Liv Lorent. Dramaturg: Selina Thompson (salt.). 'Thrillingly talented people' (Guardian).
