Synopsis

We now call it The Great Realisation


and, yes, since then there have been many.


But that’s the story of how it started . . .


and why hindsight’s 2020.



First performed online in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tomos Roberts’ heartfelt poem, with its message of hope and resilience, has been viewed over 60 million times and translated into over 20 languages.


Written in the form of a bedtime story, The Great Realisation is a celebration of the many things – from simple acts of kindness, to applauding the heroic efforts of our key workers – that have brought us together at a time of global crisis. It has captured, with magical resonance, the thoughts and feelings of millions in lockdown, as we adapt to a new way of life, find joy in unexpected places, cast aside old habits and reflect on what truly matters to us.


The Great Realisation is a story for any reader, young or old, who dares to dream of a brighter future – of a fairer, kinder, more sustainable world. It is a timely reminder that, even during our most challenging moments, there is always hope.
