The Sound Inside

By Adam Rapp

Paperback £19.99

When Bella Baird, an isolated creative writing professor at Yale, begins to mentor a brilliant but enigmatic student, Christopher, the two form an unexpectedly intense bond. As their lives and the stories they tell about themselves become intertwined in unpredictable ways, Bella makes a surprising request of Christopher.

Brimming with suspense, this riveting play explores the limits of what one person can ask of another.

Press Quotes

'The closest thing that the American theater currently has to a David Foster Wallace, Rapp can give you the head rush of sophisticated literary allusion and unreliable narrative trickery à la Dostoevsky, and yet talk of Plano, Illinois, and let you know that he knows exactly how it feels… a gripping stunner of a play'

Chicago Tribune

'An astonishing play… flawless'

New York Times

'Hypnotic and confoundingly dramatic…Will take your breath away'


'A brutally beautiful fable about how writers live to write—and then forget to live'
