I Can Hear You, Damn It!

July 22 – 23, 2023

Audrey Kahn, a famous actress, is out walking with her daughter when she falls to the ground in what appears to be a cardiac arrest. She is rushed to the hospital and falls into a coma. Audrey’s daughter, Amy, and son, Robert, are erroneously told she is in a vegetative state without a lot of hope for improvement.

Unknown to them, there has been an error, and two charts have been confused; it is actually another coma patient there at the same time who DOES have a dire prognosis, not Audrey. In fact, Audrey can hear almost everything people say to her while they believe she cannot hear a word.

A whole array of characters visit the patient. They tell her secrets, confess things they did or did not do, proclaim their love, apologize… or, as in the case of her colorful nurse, audition for her incessantly. Dramas are aplenty in this funny and poignant story of a person learning the whole truth and nothing but.
