The Silence of Snow: The Life of Patrick Hamilton, Quay, Sudbury, 11th October 2018
Mark Farrelly (Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope) presents his riveting, kinetic solo show portraying one of the great English writers of the inter-war years.
Patrick Hamilton was a dazzling success in his twenties, producing hit plays Rope (filmed by Hitchcock) and Gaslight, and classic novels Twenty Thousand Streets Under The Sky, Hangover Square and The Slaves of Solitude.
But Hamilton was also an alcoholic, whose wit darkened as his inner and outer worlds collapsed. Covering the entire sweep of Hamilton's life and writing, The Silence of Snow entertains and challenges, asking audiences: why do so many of us get through life without feeling we ever truly knew another person?
This witty, engaging tribute to a great English writer is written and performed by Mark Farrelly, whose West End credits include Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe.
