Description

Nights are dark and lonely at the end of the world. In the aftermath of an environmental apocalypse, a girl frantically tunes a hand-cranked radio, listening for signs of life. Finding only silence, she decides to end it all. Just as the radio finally crackles to life. In their first and final moments, two women form the strongest connection of their lives. The Voices We Hear takes a deeply personal look at environmental oblivion, reminding us that it’s not just about numbers and statistics: it’s about the people we’ll miss.

A very thought provoking play which was slow to start.
Truthfully there is better out there.
Very interesting venue but not sure that’s a reason to see the show.

Very powerful play, exploring the complexity of loss, grief and loneliness in a minimal yet evocative setting.

The performance of the two actors struck a careful balance between the tragic and the light-hearted, creating an intimate atmosphere in which difficult emotions are fully exposed.

A must see!

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 32 days ago

"...a subtle but effective piece that uses heart and humour to sidestep bigger dramatic issues in favour of a touching story of two smart women who help each other to survive."

Theatre Weekly (4/5 stars) 33 days ago

Running at around 40 minutes, The Voices We Hear is one of the shortest plays you’ll see at The Edinburgh Fringe, but it will also be one of the most though provoking, and perhaps even the most atmospheric. If the world is to end in our lifetimes, you’ll want to have experienced this intensely moving drama first.

“Hello?” Alex is a young woman at the end of the line.  She talks on a walkie talkie and listens to the short-wave radio, but the airwaves offer nothing in return. She is tired of waiting, alone, rotting away along with her post-apocalypse house.  In the continuing silence and as...

The Voices We Hear takes place at an indeterminate moment in the future, when our current disregard for the planet has run its course and there are few survivors. It is the last show of the day (21.15) at the innovative (and much needed) zero waste venue: the Greenhouse  by...
