“He said if we won, he’d buy a desert island, and we’d all go and live there and never come back. That was his dream. It was our nightmare. We must have been the only family in England praying not to win”.

Shelagh Stephenson’s Five Kinds of Silence is a captivating and powerful exploration of a family shattered by violence and abuse.

This emotional and thought-provoking play follows the lives of a mother and her two daughters as they struggle to cope with the aftermath of a lifetime of domestic violence. Through Stephenson’s beautifully crafted characters and poignant dialogue, the audience is taken on a journey that is both harrowing and uplifting, exploring themes of love, loss, and the resilience of the human spirit.

Brought to you by Painting Elephants CIC and the Salford Survivors Project, don’t miss your chance to witness the true power of theatre in action, as Five Kinds of Silence promises an unforgettable evening that “gets under its audience’s skin and stays there”.
