You Heard Me is for anyone who has been underestimated.
Anyone who has been told to shut up.
Anyone who has been afraid to walk home.

You Heard Me is a true story.

You Heard Me is a celebration of a single moment of noise that freed Luca from an attack. Made her understand what it means to take up space. To heal. To be part of something much bigger than yourself.

You Heard Me celebrates the quiet as well as the loud, the soft as well the hard.

This is a show about refusing to stay quiet and the power to re-make, re-mould and disrupt.
