Can you hear me running?

PLEASANCE THEATRE, London. Oct 4-23 October 2016
Can You Hear Me Running? charts the real life experiences of Louise, a performer who loses her voice to a rare condition and decides to overcome it by running the London Marathon. Louise embarks on a journey to re-find her voice and meets a host of characters along the way, from voice professionals to new age healers. In a visually engaging and innovative production, live music, video projection and storytelling are combined to theatricalise this intimate yet universal story about never giving up until the finish line.
5stars LondonTheatre1  “beautifully written by Harper…a probing real-life drama that challenges our sensibilities but leaves us feeling warm inside”.
5stars  Womens Running UK “The script is powerful, both simple and emotional”.
4 stars  Cairns Theatre Passion “Understated yet moving, an honest and energetic show”.
3 Star Review The Stage “Engaging one-woman show combining energetic storytelling and rich visuals”.
