Runtime: 1h 30m
The Silent Woman is a powerful commentary on the way women's voices have been silenced by a patriarchal society, a silencing which continues to this day. Inspired by the Gothic Novels of the Brontes and the suspenseful atmospheres of Daphne Du Maurier, The Silent Woman is a magic-box: a novel disguised as a play about writing a novel that becomes a comic drama about four women thrown together by fate and circumstance, with spine-tingling results. Returning to London with their 7th production at The White Bear, Canadian company Savage Kid premieres The Silent Woman. Alain Goulem directs a truly trans-Atlantic cast: British actors Fiona Tong and Cara Steele are joined by Canadian actors Jane Wheeler and Alexandria Haber (who co-wrote with Ned Cox) in this "spirited" new play about ghosts of things past and silent women.
