An extraordinary story of two girls’ struggle to be heard...
Identical twins June and Jennifer communicate in their own private language. Refusing to speak to adults, their only relationship is an intense and turbulent bond with each other. Based on a true story, Speechless explores the twins’ secret world and their struggle to find a voice against all odds.
The winner of a Fringe First Award 2010, Speechless is directed and co-written by Artistic Director of Shared Experience, 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.
