About Silence

Set during the Dark Ages but with contemporary overtones, Silence is the tale of Lord Silence of Cumbria who is forced to marry a fiery French noblewoman, Ymma of Normandy. This unlikely pairing exposes a revelation which makes them flee for their lives, and embark on a provocative journey of self-discovery. Silence won the 1997-1998 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

Silence is for mature audiences and depicts violence, sexual situations, and strong language.

We are grateful to City Sewing Room for their generous donation of fabric for this performance.
