Our live shows are entertaining and theatrical as well as recorded performances.
We create enjoyable theatre reminiscent of the 1950’s ‘light programmes’ such as The Goon Show.
A force of creative talent.
Our company has grown over the years to incorporate some of the best in local writing, acting and sound talent.
In many of our productions we have made use of the audience to help create soundscapes and background noises in addition to our live Foley and pre-recorded sound effects.
I Hear Voices Theatre Company was founded in 2012 and is based in Colchester, Essex.
The company was established by long-time collaborators Damien Bell and Darren Gooding in defiance of an uncaring world to make use of the modern panacea, the internet, to salve their artistic frustration.
The company focus is on narrative comedy and - inspired by radio broadcasts such as ‘The Goon Show’ - we record performances of our plays to a live audience, sometimes using audience participation to create background crowds or a chorus.
The company is ‘semi-professional’, comprised of professional performers and enthusiastic, dedicated amateurs, with skills in acting, magic, stand-up, writing and composing.
