Louder Is Not Always Clearer 
A Mr and Mrs Clark Production
Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s just become a
father. His friends say that he’s outgoing and that he loves music, festivals and
nightclubs. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that
disability would stigmatise their son and the family.
‘Louder Is Not Always Clearer’ is an honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf
man, created and performed by a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an
illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a
familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous
and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.
Mr and Mrs Clark make new and thought provoking performances that engage and
entertain audiences. The Clarks were short-listed for the Amnesty International
Freedom of Expression Award in 2015 and presented (F.E.A.R.) as part of Wales In
Edinburgh in 2017. Louder Is Not Always Clearer was short-listed for a Total Theatre
Award in 2019.
