Exploring the themes of Silence:
Saturday 17 November at 4pm
What holds families together? What tears them apart? What's brewing in the silences?
Delve deeper into the themes of Silence in an exclusive talk with award winning playwright Nicola Werenowska. Nicola will be joined by Director Jo Newman, members of the cast and her husband Leszek Werenowska, whose mother’s experience of deportation to Siberia inspired and informed the play. The discussion will explore the stories which inspired Silence and examine the trauma and challenges associated with the second generation experience.
Join the cast and creatives before the final performance of the national tour, as they unlock this funny and fascinating new play, which spans two decades and three generations of a Polish/British family and the heritage that unites and divides them.
“Silence is the play I've wanted to write for 20 years. To give voice to a wartime Polish generation whose stories of deportation and displacement were written out of history, silenced by the fearful West, buried deep within families. And to give voice to those 2nd and 3rd generation Poles, trying to unravel the past, trying to make sense of who they are. “ Nicola Werenowska
