About this show

The play is inspired by the life of internationally acclaimed percussionist Evelyn Glennie. Evelyn begins having earaches at age eight, but even as her hearing worsens, her love of playing drums grows. Although she is eventually pronounced "profoundly deaf," she excels in the school orchestra and, with unshakeable determination, applies and is accepted to the Royal Academy of Music. The story is a tribute to all kids, whatever their circumstances, who find the inner strength to pursue their passions.
