Show Information

Shared Experience and Sherman Cymru return to Cardiff (fresh from a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe) to tell the extraordinary story of identical twins June and Jennifer Gibbons.

Refusing to speak to adults, the twins’ only relationship is their intense and turbulent bond with each other. Speechless is an astonishing and powerful portrayal of the twins’ secret world and their struggle to find a voice against all odds.

Listen to actor, Anita Reynolds share her thoughts about Speechless

Speechless is directed and co-written by Shared Experience’s joint Artistic Director, Polly Teale. Celebrated for her potent visual and imaginative style, Polly won the Evening Standard Award for Best Director for her own play After Mrs Rochester, which also won the Time Out Award for Best West End Production.
