The World is Never Quiet (Performance, 26th January 2018)

“Walk with us through this everyday city and listen in to its everyday voices.” Durham City is the setting for The World is Never Quiet, a new play by David Napthine. Come to a free, rehearsed reading on 26th January 2018, brought to you by the Hearing the Voice project.

Spend a summer’s day with a cast of characters inspired by visitors to the world’s first major exhibition on voice-hearing – Hearing Voices: suffering, inspiration and the everyday – that took place at Durham University’s Palace Green Library from November 2016 to February 2017.

Drawing on his experience as writer in residence for the exhibition, David provides a compelling insight into what it is like to hear voices, with a play that takes its audience on a journey through the streets of Durham and the lives of its residents.

A rehearsed reading of The World is Never Quiet will be taking place on 26 January 2018. Come to Durham Town Hall at 19:30 for an hour of stories about Durham and its voice-hearers, and help us develop this ground-breaking piece of work by providing feedback in a relaxed session after the event.

All are welcome to this free event, but pre-booking is essential. To reserve your tickets, please visit the eventbrite page.

Refreshments will be provided.

Doors will be open from 19:00. The reading finishes at 20:30, with discussion continuing until 21:00.

‘The World is Never Quiet’ has been produced by Mary Robson on behalf of Hearing the Voice. Hearing the Voice is an interdisciplinary project about voice-hearing led by researchers from Durham University and funded by the Wellcome Trust.
