Silence by Moira Buffini will be presented by Large Print Theatre at the Jack Studio, Tuesday 5 - Saturday 23 March 2013 at 7.45pm. Press night: Thursday 7 March at 7.45pm.
Silence is a provocative comedy set in late Dark Ages England. The Vikings rule the North and the Saxons the South of the country under the reign of King Ethelred.
At the King's bidding Ymma, a powerful French princess, is inadvertently married to another woman. Here begins a millennial road-trip and wildly original love story that remains relevant to our own world a thousand years later.
Silence was winner of The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
