AUGMENTED
Written & Performed by Sophie Woolley
Directed by Rachel Bagshaw
5 - 7 MARCH, THE STUDIO
From going deaf in her 20s, to being activated/switched on as a real-life ‘cyborg’, Sophie Woolley’s brand-new play is a personal story of the joy and conflict of becoming ‘hearing’ again after years of total deafness.
This funny and energetic one-person show brings to life Sophie’s real experiences and explores the impact of her ‘activation’ on her sense of self and on the very closest of her relationships. As we begin to understand her journey more, Sophie invites us to consider the transformative power of technology; is her experience a blueprint for the future of humanity?
AUGMENTED is directed by Rachel Bagshaw (Associate Director at London’s Unicorn Theatre). It features creative captions by award-winning Josh Pharo, and design by award-winning set and costume designer Laura Hopkins, with an amazing soundtrack by Adrienne Quartly.

‘I went deaf over 20 years. In 2013 I had a cochlear implant. It changed my life and the way I engaged with culture. I’ve been hearing, deaf and now I’m what I call a ‘deaf cyborg’. Having a cochlear implant didn’t just change my life, it made me see culture differently. There were no shows that reflected my experience of the world, so I decided to make one - to share both the joy and fear of becoming a cyborg. In the future, I think hearing people will try to be more like me, rather than me trying to be more like them’ Sophie Woolley
