Production based in Gloucestershire. Synopsis: In the near future, human’s attention spans have deteriorated, causing reliance on “prompt”, a bracelet that reminds the owner of daily tasks. Archer lives alone with his fish, and his prompt instructs him to carry out basic tasks including painting simplistic art. Frustration leads to his prompt being broken. Without a prompt, he is made to feel out of place until he discovers a fascination for abstract art. Through this, he learns he is not limited by concentration and doesn’t have to be afraid of engaging with his own thoughts.

Colourful and vibrant, her hair is greying but covered in beads and wool. Zoe doesn’t care about the rest of the world, she is completely herself and is confident in her lively, eye catching clothes. She is sweet and an inspiring figure to Archer.

Zoe relied on her prompt massively when she was younger, but it was affecting her marriage with her husband. Through focusing their attention on their prompt, they were struggling to focus their time on each other. Both her and her husband chose love over their prompts and she found herself without it. Her husband is an artist too and inspired her to open the shop to let out their creativity even if the world didn’t appreciate it as much as they did. Zoe is content and wants to encourage Archer to be rid of the prompt as she has experienced the bad side of it first-hand. Her activity is crocheting.
