Part of the Southbank Centre's Imagine Children's Festival

In this playful online quest, monsters, magic powers and unicorns help share Carmen’s real-life experience of cancer. On your quest, you'll meet Carmen who, through this playful quest, shares her real-life experience of having cancer when she was seven years old. In this self-guided online experience, Carmen uses play and imagination to express the challenges she faced and overcame. Innovative theatre-maker Toby Peach, who experienced cancer as a teenager, has developed this imaginative and often joyful digital story with Carmen in order to tell her story in her own words. While this is about one child's story, it also has a universal message about finding our inner strength and resilience, and asks us what we can learn from life's most unexpected moments. Made in association with the Unicorn Theatre, with support from Arts Council England, John Thaw Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Unlimited.
