Dialogues from Babel
Direction: Mary Robson
Text: Philip Howard
We are delighted to announce that a rehearsed reading of Dialogues from Babel will take place in Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne early next month.
Drawn from interviews with voice-hearers and novelists, Dialogues from Babel weaves together conversations that unfold to illuminate the experience of hearing a voice that no one else can hear.
I think the sounds are coming from me
From my heart
My heart’s a radio
Seven actors have worked alongside director Mary Robson, dramaturg Philip Howard and Fife-based sound designer R J McConnell to create a unique theatrical experience.
The 90-minute rehearsed reading will be followed by a 30-minute panel discussion. Both performances will also be preceded by a drinks reception, to which the audience are warmly invited.
Dialogues from Babel is the result of a long-term collaboration between Edinburgh International Book Festival and Hearing the Voice. To find out more explore the theatre programme.
