We are primed to believe that extroverted speakers can be trusted, and that sensitivity is a weakness…but are we selling ourselves short? In her highly-anticipated solo stage show, writer and performer Hannah Jane Walker will use stories, games and poetry to investigate toughness, authority and how weakness might just be our strongest future resource.
Venue: Norwich Arts Centre
Duration: c. 1 hour
