ABOUt one third heard

One Third Heard is a multi platform documentary, focusing on removing the stigma attached to Abortion. A Documentary Drama, where 3 individuals who have experienced abortion share their stories. An Immersive Theatre piece, where the audience will experience the emotional journey of having an abortion from both female and male perspectives. Your money will allow us to create a powerful project focusing on zeitgeist social issues. 

About Us

Mazie Reece is the director and originator of this project and feels it is important to remove the stigma attached to abortion. Mazie believes that once the stigma has been removed, schools can begin to thoroughly educate individuals as to where to go, who to talk to and what to expect. Mazie has a passion for both documentary and immersive media, this subject has allowed her to incorporate both. 

Sally Barnett- Producer 

Sally was interested in working on this project as she has a real ambition to work in documentary and thought the issues tackled in this project are very important. Sally has lots of essential skills when it comes to producing. Her organisational skills especially will help when juggling the film and the immersive piece.

The Story

The documentary drama allows 3 individuals to tell their stories through an actor, these individuals are a variety of ages and genders. They will be sharing their experiences and explaining why they choose to have an abortion. 

The immersive theatre piece will take the user through the experience of an abortion clinic, interacting with the characters and they will be taken on a sound journey using bone conducting headphones.

The project will educate the audience on the emotional repercussions caused from the stigma attached to abortion.

Where will the money go? 

Your donations will allow us to create a powerful multi-platform project, where the issue can reach a large audience and start a conversation about the stigma attached to abortion.

If we reach our minimum goal your donations will cover:

-Location for the immersive theatre piece £150

-Props £100

-Headphones for the immersive £100

If we reach our target we will be able to pay the actors for their hard work and dedication, pay a composer for a powerful soundtrack and also pay for an extra day in the location for the immersive theatre piece.
