About

An Ivy League creative writing professor is captivated by a brilliant, rebellious freshman student. Delicate, provocative, bursting with wit - so begins the story of two outsiders on the threshold of breaking an indelible taboo.

And when the darkest of favours is requested, the stage is set. The Sound Inside drives inexorably towards a climax filled with tension, mystery and the ultimate gesture of love.

Nominated for six Tony Awards, this UK premiere of Adam Rapp’s spellbinding play stars Merchant Ivory’s Madeleine Potter and The Kite Runner’s Eric Sirakian. From director of Psychodrama Matt Wilkinson.

The Sound Inside is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
