Deaf as a Post
by Shaun Blaney

9 - 20 April 2024

Tuesday - Saturday, 7.30 pm

'Does anyone hear me? Over. Hear me? Over... One more time?'

In a dystopian London, hordes of mindless 'Loopers' infect their prey with corrupted clickbait. One d/Deaf solider named Goody must embrace his deafness and use it as a weapon to save the ones he loves. 

Deaf as a Post emerges as a powerful testament to the need for connection and communication in a world overwhelmed by noise. Its 'Black Mirror' meets 'A Quiet Place', by way of 'Call of Duty Zombies'!

Penned by award-winning actor Shaun Blaney (d/Deaf), this play is a personal and vigorous exploration of high-frequency hearing loss and the profound impact it has on individuals, their friends and family.

Directed by Emma Copland, who brought us the Bewley's Cafe award-winning Slippery When Wet, three incredible performers seamlessly multi-role in a disturbingly familiar world. A unique soundscape invites you to experience the challenges of those living with hearing aids and hearing loss, all within the gripping embrace of a fantastically wry narrative. 

A story where silence speaks louder than words.
