Are you listening? 

You Heard Me is for anyone who has been underestimated. 
Anyone who has been told to shut up. 
Anyone who has been afraid to walk home. 

You Heard Me celebrates the quiet as well as the loud, the soft as well as the hard. 

You Heard Me is a true story about the power to re-make, re-mould and disrupt. A celebration of a single moment of noise that freed Luca from an attack. Made her understand what it means to take up space. To heal. To be part of something much bigger than yourself.  

This is a show about refusing to stay quiet. This show exists because without using her voice, Luca wouldn’t.

Are you still listening?
