Alex has a secret. A secret that makes him frustrated and ashamed. A secret he has tried to hide all his life. Until tonight.

Tonight he has to decide whether to tell his secret, or to choose once again to let it remain unspoken.

Unspoken is a unique dramatic exploration of the experience of stammering.

“Why does Alex talk funny?”

The play might not answer the question, but it will help you to understand what it feels like to hear it asked.

The world premiere of this new play is the result of a collaboration between Leeds Arts Centre and the stammering community, aiming to deepen understanding through the medium of theatre.
