In the Baker Street Lost Property Office, a backpack containing a precious cargo waits to be collected by it’s owner, making idle chat with a designer bag, a navy Marks and Spencer’s cardigan and a multitude of other objects left by Underground travellers. The bag’s owner, a “spaced out” musician who lives with her cat in a bedsit in Finsbury Park, left the backpack on a train at Camden Town station. When will she collect her backpack? Is that her now?
Lost Property a mother daughter collaboration produced by Theatre Mensch. The themes of the piece are family, loss, and how and why we run away from emotional pain.
