“I never imagined how losing the strength in one muscle would lead me to find another…”

Can You Hear Me Running? uses live music, video projection and storytelling to bring to life this intimate yet universally resonant story about never giving up until you reach the finish line.
CAN YOU HEAR ME RUNNING?
Pleasance Theatre, Carpenters Mews, North Road, London, N7 9EF
Tuesday 4th – Sunday 23rd October 2016
This new production follows the real-life journey of Louise Breckon-Richards – a performer who lost her voice due to a rare condition and tried to overcome it by running in the London Marathon.
In 2009, Louise was auditioning for the global smash-hit Mamma Mia when illness shattered her chances and her voice gave way. Pushing on, Louise swapped song sheets for trainers, embracing a new challenge as she fought to re-find her voice.
Using Louise’s notes, blog entries and her diary, playwright Jo Harper shows us Louise as she meets a host of people on her journey, from voice professionals to new-age healers. Can You Hear Me Running? is a fun and thought-provoking one-woman show about defiance in face of all 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.”
