Can I Start Again Please

Sue MacLaine

A bold new work by Sue MacLaine about our cognitive capacity to process traumatic experience and the ability of language to represent it. Winner of a Total Theatre award for 'Innovation & Playing with Form' and recommended for the British Council showcase at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

The play explores how possible the cognition and articulation of traumatic and private experience is. A hymn to resilience, this personal and political piece spars across the heard and the unheard, the spoken and the unspoken, and contemplates what the act of trying to tell really entails.

Written in English and in British Sign Language, the two languages and two scripts work both in opposition and in harmony to test and stretch the capacities of language.

Edition includes English as well as British Sign Language script.
