Listening To Voices

See, feel and hear ordinary people taking the lead role in their own story, sharing experiences of voices, depression, anxiety, trauma and of diagnosis, life, loss, and ultimately hope. This powerful performance is something rare and important that balances humour alongside tough topics such as bullying, self-harm and suicide, to ultimately build empathy and unite us all in the human journey.
