Mr & Mrs Clark: Louder Is Not Always Clearer
Thursday 19th March 2020
Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s an artist, a campaigner, he’s just become a father, and he is deaf. He loves to dance, but he can’t hear the music unless the bass is turned right up. Jonny was born deaf and grew up with a hearing family and friends who did not use the word deaf.
This one-man show is an honest portrayal of a man perceived to be full of confidence and who is outwardly social, but is inwardly vulnerable and at times isolated. In a hearing world, Jonny is different and Louder Is Not Always Clearer highlights those differences in a warm and humorous way.
The show is accessible to D/deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences through the use of spoken English, British Sign Language and creative captions.
