They’re pretty special. They give a person the opportunity to express themselves. They can be read. They can be heard. They can be spoken. They allow us to communicate with one another. I was always told; it’s not what you said, but how you said it – is that true?

This is an interactive theatre piece where the audience become either the a host or contestant in a gameshow that holds a magnifying glass up to the words we use daily.
