1.54pm - to be experienced while boiling the kettle.

Whether its builders, chai, herbal or terribly made by a fancy barista. Drinking tea brews into our minds as a moment to relax, a moment to forget about or even reflect on the world, a communal joy.

In this audio play, we eavesdrop on four cousins zooming and spilling the tea, (metaphorically of course, no one wants to waste any.) Listen in to what joins all of them and the ritual of drinking tea together, their nan. Take 5 minutes out of your day, get a brew on and take a moment to stop and share in a moment of connection. 

Scroll is designed as the antidote to 'doom scrolling', a series of digital story interventions commissioned by Northern Stage, replacing the moments of mindless scrolling with tiny stories about us.
