The Silence of Snow: The Life of Patrick Hamilton
Blistering solo play written and performed by Mark Farrelly ("Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope"). Directed by Linda Marlowe ("EastEnders").
Patrick Hamilton was a dazzling success in his twenties, producing hit plays "Rope" (filmed by Hitchcock) and "Gaslight", and classic novels "Hangover Square" and "The Slaves of Solitude". But Hamilton was also an alcoholic, whose wit darkened as his inner and outer worlds collapsed. Hugely-acclaimed play "The Silence of Snow" entertains and challenges in equal measure, asking: why do so many of us get through life without feeling we ever truly knew another person?
