Intuition is a powerful thing. The feeling that you’re right, without the knowledge that you are. Trusting your gut feeling could lead you to choose what you want for breakfast, or make life-changing decisions without really knowing why. But what would happen if you knew what other people’s guts were saying? Well, you’d become a superhero.
That’s the premise behind Kate Kennedy’s new one-woman show, Hunch, anyway.
The actress has written her play all about intuition and the decisions we make based on it to take up to the Edinburgh Festival this year, after a couple of preview performances in London. The piece is directed by Sara Joyce, who is a member of this year’s Old Vic 12 group.
We caught up with Kate and Sara to discuss Hunch, and whether they rely on their intuitions when it comes to creating theatre.
Hunch is at the Soho Theatre on 23rd and 24th July, before heading the Edinburgh at the Assembly Roxy from 1st to 27th August at 5.05pm.
