Can I Start Again Please desiccates and dissects childhood trauma via an exploration of Wittgenstein and semantics. What is being investigated is the power and failings of language - language that tells and hide truths - sparring across the heard and the unheard, the spoken and the unspoken.
This poetic script is performed in spoken English and British Sign Language; however it’s not simply a direct translation.
The work was originally commissioned to be part of the Sick! Festival in Brighton and Manchester, and has since received universal critical acclaim from critics in national publications such as The Guardian, The Times and Sunday Times and The Independent.

“A challenging, devastating and devastatingly good piece.”
