Real Life Story Of Performer's Voice Loss Challenge Comes To Pleasance

Can You Hear Me Running at the Pleasance Theatre London

Can You Hear Me Running? is based on the true story of Louise Breckon-Richards - a performer who lost her voice and tried to overcome it through running the London Marathon. Whilst auditioning for Mamma Mia! in 2009, Louise's voice gave way, shattering her chances. Trying to move on, Louise swapped sheet music for trainers, embracing new challenges as she fought to re-find her voice. Playwright Jo Harper used Louise's actual notes, blog entries and her personal diary, to show her journey as she meets a host of people, from voice professionals to new-age healers. Can you Hear Me Running? is a fun and thought-provoking one-woman show about defiance and beating the odds.

Louise comments: I never imagined how losing the strength in one muscle would lead me to find another. When I lost my voice as a performer, I discovered my running legs and ran a marathon, which ultimately has led me back on stage. To have found a positive amid the loss has given me the rare opportunity to be creatively involved in a project that matters deeply to me. This visually distinctive and innovative show is packed with live music and uses video projection and storytelling to vividly bring to life a story about never giving up until you reach the finishing line. Can You Hear Me Running? will be presented at The Pleasance London from 4 - 23 October 2016. BOOK TICKETS FOR CAN YOU HEAR ME RUNNING?
