Louder, I Can\'t Hear You
Louder, I Can't Hear You
By William Gleason.

Cast: 3m., 3w. A comedy about a sometimes tragic, sometimes humorous, aspect of life today—the fact that people don't listen anymore, that people don't hear each other. In the deft hands of playwright Gleason, we see a family together but each one entirely in his or her own world. The point-counterpoint as each follows a separate line of thought is truly hilarious, but there's a poignancy under it. These people who won't or can't hear each other are losing the ability to communicate. The mother, anxious to reach her young people, turns to a psychiatrist for help—only to discover that he can't "hear" either! There's a final effort in which they try to involve themselves a little with each other and a wry, witty conclusion. Divided int. set. Approximate Running Time: 35 minutes.
