Deaf as a Post
by Shaun Blaney

9 - 20 April 2024

Tuesday - Saturday, 7.30 pm

'Does anyone hear me? Over. Hear me? Over. Hear me? Could you speak up? One more time?'

In a future London, where the echoes of binary arguments and clickbait dominate, Deaf as a Post emerges as a powerful testament to the need for connection in a world overwhelmed by noise.

Penned by award-winning actor Shaun Blaney (d/deaf), this gripping sci-fi drama invites you into a dystopian realm where listening becomes a revolutionary act.


This play is a vigorous exploration of high-frequency hearing loss and the profound impact it has on individuals, their friends, family, and co-workers.

Directed by Emma Copland, who brought us the Bewley's Cafe award-winning Slippery When Wet, three incredible performers seamlessly multi-role over eight characters in a disturbingly familiar world. The quick, inventive set changes transport you through time and space, and a vast, complex soundscape envelopes you in a truly multi-dimensional experience.

Deaf as a Post invites us to understand the challenges, hopes, and dreams of those living with hearing aids and hearing loss, all within the gripping embrace of a fantastically wry narrative. Be moved, inspired, and immersed in a landscape where silence speaks louder than words, for anyone craving a deeper connection with the world.

This show lasts for 80 minutes without a break.
