Devising a New Show about Male Domestic Abuse: Jo Tomalin talks with Ronan Dempsey about The Words Are There

Ronan Dempsey wrote and performs the physical theatre new writing solo piece The Words Are There for his company NTH Degree Productions. He talks with Jo Tomalin about devising the show and reactions from audiences.

Mick awaits Trish. He stands in his little seaside flat in oh-so-dreamy Bettystown, Ireland: like that little town in Murder She Wrote. 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 timely new piece of comic/tragic physical theatre delving into a lesser learned side of domestic abuse.
