Billy’s fiercely idiosyncratic, un-PC family are their own tiny empire. They have their own private language, jokes and rules. You can be as rude as you like, as possessive as you like and as critical as you like. After all, arguments are an expression of love, aren’t they?
Born deaf, Billy’s adapted exceptionally to his hearing family’s conventionally unconventional ways, but they’ve never bothered to return the favour. It’s not until he meets Sylvia that he finally understands what it means to be understood; but is anybody else listening?
Brilliantly funny, defiantly engaging. Theatre that will leave you speechless.
Fiercely intelligent, caustically funny.
The best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring – and funniest – new play in recent years.
