‘The quest’ is a story about adventure. After receiving a mysterious call during lockdown, a librarian and her housemates set out on a quest to discover the meaning of adventure.

 

Ever wanted to go to the moon, become a spy or an inventor? Then join the screen-free fun. Using everyday props, this imaginative audio play offers you a chance to join in with activities to become part of the story.

 

Each 10 minute episode looks at the life of a real character and their adventure. It is a great way to become immersed in a story and experience a sense of travel from home.

 

This original story was written especially for 5 to 10 year olds and their family. It features original sound design and music.

 

This project was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. It was also supported by Applause Rural Touring.

Episode 1: Katherine Johnson

Welcome to episode 1. The Quest is a participatory audio play. It’s best enjoyed as a family and children shouldn’t be left unattended.

For a fully immersive experience, you need to gather a few simple props. Don’t worry, nothing fancy and we’ll tell you what to do with them. You will soon get the idea.

For this episode you need to be sitting on chairs, in a round, or facing each other if you are a pair. If you’re alone, sit in the middle of a room.

You will need:

  • A washing up bowl, or a large salad bowl or Tupperware.

  • One glass each. One of them should be half-full with water.

  • One small piece of cardboard, large enough to cover the glass, but not too large, you can just cut a box of cereals, or if you have a cardboard coaster, that’s great.

  • A pair of headphones each. If you don’t have headphones, take a banana, a carrot or even a pen: just as long as you’ve got one item each.
