‘Thank you for reaching out'
In a world increasingly disconnected from itself, Alex finds connection on the phone, telling their most intimate thoughts to a stranger.
Exploring the ways we love, lie and empathise, YOUR CALL is a play about the use and abuse of helplines, told through a series of phone calls. To an underscoring of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, we follow our protagonist Alex come to terms with family trauma from the safety of their apartment, addicted to the sound of that first ‘Hello, how can I help?’.
YOUR CALL is the debut play from writer Hayley Canham, whose previous work includes the five star musical ‘Medea The Musical’, which was performed in 2022 to sold out audiences at The Town and Gown Theatre in Cambridge and Paradise Green at Edinburgh Fringe
