The theatre was filled with both sexes of mixed ages.
All with one thing in common.
It started when a youngish fella on the stage made strange - to me - gestures.
The 'audience' laughed, sighed, clapped and responded to his movements.
Then it started, the sound of 'Love Changes Everything,' sung by Michael Ball.
The whole of the theatre except for my husband and I, started to make most beautiful movements reciprocating the words of the song.
A sedentary ballet dance with the arms and hands were producing artistic shapes 'singing' and signing to all the others with hearing loss.
Amazing.

    Sounds fabulous Marion. Michael Ball is a terrific singer... and love really does change everything! I’m transported there with you both.

    (P.S. I love true stories; many of my own are either true or true with a bit of artistic licence.)

    Excuse me... I have just re-read and understood what I missed on first and second reading. Must have been amazing.

    Everyone, except us, were non hearing. It was an event many years ago held at Chesterfield Library theatre. My husband was involved in the venue arrangements. I have never forgotten it.

    This is a lovely drabble.

    I just caught up reading all your drabbles I'd missed. I enjoyed them all but only commented on a couple as I had quite a few to get through.
