Sounds and Guts – Written, Performed and Directed by Tess Denman-Cleaver


In the 1970s 17% of the UKโ€™s population lived alone. Today it is 31%.


Tender Buttons latest production, Sounds & Guts, will take you on a theatrical tour through a labyrinth of archive film, field recordings and collected stories of solitude.

Sounds & Guts started as a question about why solitude is โ€œgoodโ€ and loneliness is bad, and about whether it is possible to have one without the other.
