Sophie Woolley presents ‘Augmented’, a piece about overcoming the internalised stigma of writing about cochlear implantation to create a remarkable and entertaining solo show about power and the future of humanity. She also touches on her transforming identities over time, her hilarious YouTube series ‘Deaf Faker’, and when she has and hasn’t centred her Deafness.

Sophie Woolley is a writer and performer. In 2019 she set up Augmented Productions, which became an associate company of Told by an Idiot in its inaugural year. She is currently writing for EastEnders.

Stage plays include Augmented, (directed by Rachel Bagshaw and produced by Told by an Idiot), When to Run (produced by renaissanceone) Fight Face and Bee Detective, (directed by Gemma Fairlie and produced by Tin Bath Theatre).
