National Theatre Wales’ and Quarantine’s extraordinary new show invites its audience into a conversation about language with performer Jonny Cotsen – a performance built out of a fascination with what happens when we try to talk about how to live together. 

It’s inspired by the theatricality of language lessons, and discussions with migrants who learn English for all kinds of reasons. For business, for pleasure, for survival, to take part, to pass the test…

 

Dr Sally Austen in conversation with Bella Bathurst: Sound

Jacob’s Antique Market

Tickets £6.50

BSL interpreted performance, Sunday 10 June 4pm (Interpreter: Lianne Lusty)

Sound draws on this extraordinary experience, exploring what it is like to lose your hearing and – as Bella eventually did – to get it back, and what that teaches you about listening and silence, music and noise. She investigates the science behind deafness, hearing loss among musicians, soldiers and factory workers, sign language, and what Deaf people know about these subjects that hearing people do not.

THIS IS THE PERSON I AM NOW. IT’S THE PERSON I WANT TO BE, SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME. WE GOT DARK, SOPHIE. THINGS GOT DARK, AND I… I’M BETTER NOW. I’M IN A BETTER PLACE.”

Dublin Carol

1st – 17th February 2018

Captioned preformance 14th February 2018 @ 7.30pm

 

 

 

“THERE’S NOTHING WORSE THAN DECORATIONS AFTER CHRISTMAS. THAT’S THE WAY I SOMETIMES USED TO FEEL PUTTING MY CLOTHES ON IN THE MORNING.”
Dublin, Christmas Eve. John, an alcoholic undertaker, is confronted by the ghosts of his past. Can he salvage something from the life he himself wrecked?

Conor McPherson is not only one of the most acclaimed playwrights working today, he is one the most compassionate. McPherson’s characters are people we can believe in and relate to. In Dublin Carol, he creates a deeply moving account of a man struggling to face up to his past, present and future.

This new production of this modern masterpiece by Matthew Xia, one of the UK’s brightest directing talents, promises a highly emotional experience in the intimacy of the Sherman Studio.
