in the absence of silence - Chickenshed

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

CHICKENSHED is presenting in the absence of silence in the Chickenshed Studio Theatre from Wednesday, April 27 to Saturday, May 14, 2016.

Five women meet on the beach in a seaside town for a picnic lunch. As the day progresses their friendship and shared experiences reveal devastating truths from the hidden corners of their lives – but through their heartache and pain has come an unbreakable bond of strength, love and hope.

Described as a wonderfully honest and uplifting drama of hope and survival (co-produced with Creu Cymru and developed with South Gwynedd Domestic Abuse Services), in the absence of silence is inspired by interviews conducted with women as part of Chickenshed’s outreach project, Survivors.

in the absence of silence is a poignant portrayal of what can all too often be untold stories, and the life-affirming and positive truth of what is possible when the silence is broken.

in the absence of silence is suitable for ages 15+.

Tickets: £12, £8 concessions; £5 for ages 13 – 25 years; £7 for schools.

Times: Wednesday, April 27 to Saturday, May 14 at 7.30pm; Friday, May 13 at 8pm; matinees: Thursday, April 28 at 1pm and Saturday, May 14 at 5.30pm.
