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.
