Coram commissioned the play Echoes Through Time: The Story of Care as part of the Voices Through Time: The Story of Care programme, made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Writer Brian Mullin created the script in collaboration with a group of care-experienced young people in autumn 2023. A new group of care-experienced young people performed the premiere of the play, directed by Vicky Moran, to a sold-out audience at Hoxton Hall, London, on 4 April 2024. 

This digital resource pack is designed to support schools, youth groups, theatre companies and others to learn about the care system, past and present, and to stage Echoes Through Time for new audiences. The play is for a company of performers aged 14 to 24 and suitable for audiences aged 14+.
