Taliesin Live - Louder is Not Always Clearer


Louder is Not Always Clearer

A Mr and Mrs Clark Production

Devised and Performed by Jonny Cotsen

Devised and Directed by Gareth Clark

Sound Design Chris Young

Choreography Catherine Bennett

Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader, a football fan, a father, a festival goer. Jonny is deaf. This is his humorous and moving story, portraying the vulnerability of a deaf man, created and performed by a deaf man.

For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.

Mr and Mrs Clark short-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award in 2015 and presented (F.E.A.R.) as part of Wales In Edinburgh in 2017.


Note: The performance incorporates British Sign Language, creative captions and spoken English to make it accessible to D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audiences. Should any audience members require audio enhancement during the performance, then headsets will be provided.

Support by Arts Council Wales, Chapter Arts Centre, National Theatre Wales
