THE NOISES

a new play by Jacqueline Saphra

directed by Tamar Saphra

 

‘I am Luna, new bitch.

                        Golden Luna, dog show winner,

                                    no food-snatcher,

                                                no hair-shedder,

                                                            no shit-maker,

                                                                        no Them-biter.

Gold as good Luna.’

Luna’s a dog. A good dog. Nemesis of the big-dick-labradoodle, rabbit hunter, merciless protector of the human pack.

 

It’s a warm April night and The Noises are everywhere. Luna’s only friend, Ellie, has gone out, but Ma has locked Luna in and she’s getting restless. The night is stretching out and changing shape, strange smells are drifting through the closed door.

 

Beyond the door, The Noises are getting faster and louder and Luna’s beloved Ellie hasn’t come home.

 

What does it mean to be brave? What does it mean to be good?

 

Confined here together in the dark, what else do we have but each other?

 

-------

 

A mother and daughter collaboration between TS Eliot Award Shortlisted poet and playwright Jacqueline Saphra and director-dramaturg Tamar Saphra, The Noises is a visceral new play about fear, courage, the nature of violence and the power of emotional connection.

 

Every performance has fully integrated audio description for blind and visually impaired audiences. For any questions or for more information about this, email thenoisesplay@gmail.com.

 

The Noises is performed by Amy McAllister (Scorch; Call the Midwife), with sound design from Tom Parkinson (I’m A Phoenix, Bitch; Super Duper Close Up).

 

The Noises was longlisted for the 2017 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting.

 

This production has been generously supported by The T.S. Eliot Foundation and Arts Council England.
