Meet Jonny: teacher, father and football fan. He’s an artist, a campaigner, and he’s deaf. He wishes he could sing and loves to dance, but he can’t hear the music unless the bass is turned right up.
Jonny grew up in a hearing family, surrounded by fear of the stigma of disability.
Louder Is Not Always Clearer tells Jonny’s moving, funny story of disconnection, difference and desperation to belong. This one-man show is a starkly honest portrayal of a man seemingly confident, outgoing and popular, who is inwardly vulnerable and, at times, isolated.
In a hearing world Jonny is different.
Supported by Arts Council Wales, Chapter Arts Centre and an commissioned for Experimentica17
There is some strong language and a scene with sexual content
Louder Is Not Always Clearer is part of Wales In Edinburgh and British Council Showcase 2019 and has been selected for National Rural Touring Forum Dance Initiative.

Flossy and Boo have been plonked right inthe middle of what is known as "The Real World", and have been told in no uncertain terms that they are in fact, ‘Girls’. But what is a ‘Girl’? And who gets to decide? In this cabaret-style theatre show, Flossy and Boo explore all the intricacies of what it means to be female in the modern world. From feminism to romance, to the wonder of Kate Bush, the audience decide what comes next in the show – leading to hilarious and unexpected results. Girl on Girl is filled with Music, Comedy, and Flossy and Boo’s own curious take on the world around us and the ridiculous life cards we are dealt.
Think of the theatrical equivalent of putting your hand down the side of the sofa. Gross, a tiny layer of crumb, a smudge of gum, but then you find that forgotten tenner! (You know the one they allowed a lady's face on…)

Chekhov is one of the great writers of the 20th Century and these tales, newly adapted and directed by Eliot Giuralarocca, remain as memorable and bracing as jumping into a cold plungepool after a hot sauna!
Performed by a company of five and featuring original live music and stylish ensemble story-telling, In and Out of Chekhov’s shorts is an exhilarating, fun and accessible romp through some of the best of Chekhov’s short stories including The Lady with the Little Dog, The Chemist’s Wife, At a Summer Villa, An Avenger and The Bear.
These wonderful hymns to the absurdity of everyday life, are by turns hilarious, romantic, poignant, odd and memorable. They hold the mirror up to the half-comic, half-painful experience of love and relationships and create a world in which the tender and the grotesque are inextricably linked. Ludicrous situations and larger than life characters abound in an evening that simply cannot be missed!

This bold, original dark comedy by RedCape Theatre is about the power of the Heimlich manoeuvre, the call of the open road, and the kind of friendship you'd take a bullet for.
Two women pack a car with training materials and medical supplies and set off on a journey, leaving their ordinary lives behind and waving goodbye to darkness and disappointment in the rear view mirror. It's just for a couple of days, then life will return to normal. But when things take an unexpected turn in a Travelodge and events spin out of control, satnavs must be re-adjusted, and Maureen and Sylvie find themselves on the road trip of a life time.
Part quintessentially British First Aid training course, part 'Thelma and Louise', Thunder Road tells a story like you've never seen before, that will ring truein your heart and make you laugh till you cry.
“a very funny, vibrant show which also takes on weightier issues” Ludlow Advertiser
