Sue MacLaine Company

Can I Start Again Please

‘Challenging, devastating and devastatingly good’ The Guardian

Performed by Sue MacLaine and Nadia Nadarajah

Can I Start Again Please tells parallel narratives in parallel languages (English & British Sign Language) which intersect, diverge & build to create a mesmerising mix of verbal and visual theatre.

The piece desiccates and dissects childhood trauma via an exploration of Wittgenstein and semantics. What is being investigated is the power and failings of language - language that tells and hide truths - sparring across the heard and the unheard, the spoken and the unspoken.

The script is poetic and full of humour and is performed by Sue MacLaine and Nadia Nadarajah with a bright, coursing and relaxed reciprocity.

Mon 16 May, 8pm

Duration 60 minutes
