Earshot is creating a season of episodes about promises - spoken or unspoken, broken or kept.  When you seal a relationship or an encounter with a promise, you’re asking for someone’s trust.  

How hard is it to trust?    How easy is it to deliver?

We are looking for story ideas that could be:

  • a personal story - a promise made on someone’s death bed or in a school yard or over the back fence
  • a formal/institutional promise - the promise implied when a nursing home takes on the care of a resident or when a government promises to protect the welfare of its citizens
  • a challenge thrown down, with a promise to pursue it
  • Tales of love, revenge, hope and betrayal
  • Stories which range from the hilarious to the devastating
