Jonny Cotsen: Louder Is Not Always Clearer

Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s just become a father. His friends say that he’s outgoing and that he loves music, festivals and nightclubs. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that disability would stigmatise their son and the family.

An honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf man, created and performed by a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation.

For all audiences it is a humorous and moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.

The Show is accessible to D/deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences through the use of spoken English, British Sign Language and creative captions. In the performance, Jonny uses a combination of live BSL, videoed BSL, live typing and Subtitles.
