"If we carry enough hope, we can heal the world."

Samuel is afraid of the war in Maren and yearns to escape it. In the glow of moonlight, he is lured into the world within an unrolled piece of paper ...

Claire hopes to heal the world. Comforted by the memory of her father, she draws a fantastical picture with a secret life of its own ...

Doris desires the guidance of light to help her daughter Claire to survive the war. Frantically searching for her son Samuel, she is unaware of Claire's secret ...

In her inspirational article: Theatre Playscapes of Hope, award-winning Susan Marshall argues that a young person's autonomy can be further developed through a sense of comfortability with the way one carries oneself and shares their own personal presence in their lifeworld. Referring to her extensive research of World War II in Gozo and Malta (along with her own family story), she discusses how she used her new Theatre Playscapes theatrical style to create All the Hope We Carry.

In this play, All the Hope We Carry, we witness Susan's work with the Theatre Playscapes style in practice. Susan has developed a play that respects the war survivor, who faced with the traumas and turbulence of war, must find ways to carry themself and to survive. Susan uses her exceptional ability to distil and transcend vivid, dream-like moments, which evoke the spirit of the war survivor on a compelling and fantastical journey of hope. All the Hope We Carry will linger with you long after you have read it.
