12 December 2015, an elderly looking gentleman was found dead on Saddleworth Moor. He was carrying no form of identification. Train tickets in his pockets showed he’d travelled 200 miles, apparently just to die.

Despite a national campaign he remained unidentified. As the police went public with the man’s image, 40 different people reached out to claim ‘the man on the moor’ as their missing husband, father or brother. These people are ‘the left behind’. Those who pick up the pieces when someone they love leaves and simply never comes home again.

Written and performed by Max Dickins, this powerful drama looks at how people come to disappear and the impact on those they leave behind.
