The Sound Inside by Adam Rapp

10 Mar - 17 Apr 2021 KC Arts Centre - Home of SRT

Bella Bird is an accomplished professor at an Ivy League university who prizes her solitude. But when she faces a challenge she cannot tackle alone, she allies herself with a brilliant and mysterious student. Intensely intimate and deeply moving, this haunting play probes the question of what one person can do for another.

Hailed by The New York Times as “an astonishing new play”, this scintillating two-hander looks at how two brilliant social misfits connect and bond with each other. Written by award-winning writer Adam Rapp, the beauty of this gripping drama The Sound Inside is that it’s never what you expect.

Featuring Serene Chen as Bella Bird and Krish Natarajan as Christopher John.

The Sound Inside is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
