"Whispers" is a drama telling the story of Jane, who through a series of misdiagnosis learns she has ovarian cancer.

Set in her bathroom, having been sick during her daughter’s sixth birthday party, Jane reflects on the journey from diagnosis to the present day. Echoing the stages of grief, Jane battles through misdiagnosis and the feeling of not being listened to, to finding friendship and humour in the most unusual of places. She challenges the familiar mantra of ‘keeping positive’ and in turn finds herself challenged to tackle the issues of intimacy, mortality, life and love.

"Whispers" was written and produced by Ruth Hayes. Directed by Eoin Ó hAnnracháin. Sound design by Ruth Hayes and sound engineer Warren Tivy. Cast Ruth Hayes, Claire J Loy and Shane Casey.

"Whispers" was made with a grant from the broadcasting Authority of Ireland through the Sound and Vision Scheme
