Five Kinds of Silence

12 June 2020–20 June 2020

Company of Ten



Billy is dead. Or at least his family hopes he is. After all, they shot him twice just to make sure.

Finally free from a lifetime of abuse, Billy’s wife and daughters struggle to find their new place in the world. But no one reached out to help them while they suffered, and no one seems able to understand what they’re going through now. Billy may be dead, but the memory of him is still very much alive.

A shocking exploration of domestic violence, this is a powerful example of the ‘In-yer-face’ style of drama. The Independent said it was ‘an eloquent play, too emotionally mature for melodrama, that I warmly recommend.’ Varsity raved about the play, with a reviewer calling it ‘one of the most powerful, unsettling and morally complex pieces of theatre I have ever seen.’

This play has strong language and adult themes.
