In The Words Are There we encounter a man in a unknown space and unknown time. Within the show he attempts to recreate and refashion his past relationship. Using extraordinarily detailed physical theatre/mime and puppetry he brings his partner back into his life in an attempt to find closure and find the right words to convey what they had at one time and what she meant to him. The actor utters just 3 words in 52 minutes.

Life has left Mick speechless, but in his silence there lies a story. Amidst childhood falsehoods and fragmented memories, he struggles to find the words for a very important day. A compelling and powerful endurance piece of 5 star comic/tragic physical theatre delving into the silence, taboo and lesser learned side of male domestic abuse. It was listed as one of the top shows of 2018 in Ireland in The Arts Review.
