Simon Stephens's 2003 play One Minute is being revived at the Waterloo Vaults in September.

The play looks at the different lives touched by the investigation into a missing girl. Produced by Delirium, the revival promises to incorporate "a cinematic score, video and puppetry".

Stephens said: "One Minute seems as relevant to me now as it did in 2002 when I wrote it. It's a play about loss and about dislocation. It's a play about the need to connect with humans in a city. It's a play about loneliness. It's a play about London.
A decade on from its original life this need and these themes resonate in this city as deeply as they have ever done."

Directed by Oliver Kaderbhai and Matthew Churcher, One Minute runs from 7 September to 3 October 2015.
