Solo show, The Silence of Snow, will pay tribute to playwright Patrick Hamilton.
Mark Farrelly (Quentin Crisp, Naked Hope) presents a 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 became increasingly mordant as his inner and outer worlds collapsed. Covering the entire sweep of Hamilton’s turbulent life and writing, The Silence of Snow aims to entertain and challenge in equal measure; asking audiences: why do so many of us get through life without feeling we ever truly knew another person?
This 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.
