Let Me Hear You Whisper

Set in a research laboratory that embodies the mechanical, detached attitudes of 20th Century science, "Let Me Hear You Whisper" tells the poignant story of a friendless, simple scrubwoman - Ruth White, who pits all her energies to save the life of one of the experimental animals in the lab - a dolphin who stubbornly refuses to talk to anyone but her. Despite the earnest attempts of her supervisor to indoctrinate her, she cannot understand the cold, intellectual atmosphere. Secretly, she and the dolphin become friends and together strike a blow for love and understanding that thoroughly baffles the experts. For this production, famed puppeteer Bill Baird created a life-sized dolphin puppet that he both manipulates and acts as its voice. The Modern Jazz Quartet improvised and performed an original score for this production.
