Tom spends all his days watching videos.Because Tom works in child protection, as an archivist in digital forensics. 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 horrific past crimes, how do you love in the present.Tackling a sensitive and important subject with sensitivity, a Kafkaesque sense of humour, conviction and courage, and chosen from more than 500 entries to this year's Papatango New Writing Prize, Luke Owens first play reveals a dramatist of exceptional promise. An astonishing debut play from a first-time playwright, Unscorched was selected unanimously from more than 500 entries to the fifth Papatango New Writing Prize by a panel including the four members of Papatango  George Turvey, Matt Roberts, Sam Donovan and Chris Foxon  together with Neil McPherson, Artistic Director of the Finborough theatre, and Francis Grin, Literary Manager of the Finborough theatre. All scripts were judged anonymously.
