Online Event


Full play

A powerful drama of hope and survival

'At times harrowing and heartbreaking, this poignant verbatim piece about the horrors of domestic abuse is an important piece of unquestionably relevant theatre.

A searingly honest and poignant portrayal of what can all too often be untold stories, Chickenshed presents a powerful representation of the strength and power of survival.'

Please Note: this show is recommended for ages 15 years and over

Warning: contains very strong language (spoken and projected) with content and themes which some audiences may find upsetting.

Five women meet on the beach in a seaside town for a picnic lunch. As the day progresses their friendship and shared experiences reveal devastating truths from the hidden corners of their lives - but through their heartache and pain has come an unbreakable bond of strength, love and hope.

This optimistic and powerful drama (co-produced with Creu Cymru and developed with South Gwynedd Domestic Abuse Services) is inspired by interviews conducted with women as part of our outreach project, Survivors. In the Absence of Silence is an honest and poignant portrayal of what can all too often be untold stories, and the life-affirming and positive truth of what is possible when the silence is broken.
