Tony-nominated play THE SOUND INSIDE makes its Australian premiere

Nominated for six 2020 Tony Awards, including Best Play, The Sound Inside by Adam Rapp will have its Australian premiere from May 20 at the Arts Center Melbourne.

Directed by Sarah Goodes (Home, I’m Darling), the production will see Catherine McClements (Three Little Words) return to MTC and star alongside Shiv Palekar (The Real Thing) in this gripping, deep and exquisite mystery.

An intimate character study of an Ivy League teacher and student, The Sound Inside is an extraordinary showcase of playwriting skill that will keep you captivated from the start.

Director Sarah Goodes said: “The Sound Inside haunts you in the same way a character in a great novel does – following you for days afterwards, quietly waiting for you when you wake up.

“It explores our need for history to make sense of our lives and is a totally captivating ride along the way.

‘Having two actors of the caliber of Catherine McClements and Shiv Palekar promises to make this an evening at the theater you won’t forget, at once dark, funny and deeply moving, it’s the ultimate theatrical experience – a celebration of that unique special bond of collective imagination between author, performer and audience.’

Dates May 20 – July 2

Venue Arts Center Melbourne, Fairfax Studio
