Hear Me Speak! is a theatrical adventure for ages 7+, combining physical theatre, object manipulation, and audio of Sligo children’s voices.

We’ve handed over the microphone. We’ve cleared the space of adult thoughts, adult rules, and adult order. It’s time to listen up and hear what the young folk have to say!

What do you need to make your way in the world? What’s important and what’s not? How do you know when someone is your friend?

We’ve found some answers …

“ …. I would say … don’t be scared … just be … ARRRRGGGHHHH!”

“ … make chocolate free, have more playgrounds, make homework illegal … and give everyone a home …”

“ … If they’re your best friend, you can laugh at them when they fall. Like, you help them, of course, but you help them after you’re done laughing at them …”
