The Sound Inside

Intensely intimate and deeply moving, "The Sound Inside" is a haunting play that probes the question of what one person can do for another. Hailed by The New York Times as “an astonishing new play”, this scintillating two-hander looks at how two brilliant social misfits connect and bond with each other. Written by award-winning writer Adam Rapp, the beauty of this gripping drama The Sound Inside is that it’s never what you expect.

Rethinking Autism

The autism spectrum is often viewed through a lens of bias and misunderstanding, resulting in people on the autism spectrum being pressured to conform instead of the encouraged to thrive.
Join us as we discuss autism acceptance and learn about the misconceptions surrounding the autism spectrum from a panel of experts. Are the barriers that stop people on the autism spectrum from succeeding in mainstream society necessary or artificially enforced by society? Why is the prevalent narrative focused on passing as non-autistic? and what can people without autism learn from those with autism?

The Launch of the Inclusive Young Company (iYC)

SRT is partnering with Access Path Productions to launch their very first theatre training programme for diverse needs and abilities. iYC is a holistic acting programme for young persons and adults between the ages of 16 – 35, who identify as persons with disabilities. Sharing its goals with SRT’s acclaimed The Young Company (TYC) acting programme, it aims to equip and nurture selected actors-in-training with the confidence, transferable employment skills, and communication techniques that they will need to shine onstage, as well as in their career of choice. It features professional masterclasses and mentorship – led by international artist Grace Lee-Khoo – which will provide a platform for the development of participants' creative potential as independent performers and theatre-makers.
