Rachel has been the voice for her deaf mother since she was born, but now she is restless to
be heard for herself. Together, they have found sanctuary in a Quaker community that
reveres silence. But the world is at war and it is becoming ever harder to live in Friendship.
When a stranger arrives in their midst, their fragile peace is set to shatter.
This powerful new play from the acclaimed writer Charlotte Jones is a spellbinding
exploration of the timeless challenges of bringing the truth to light.
Charlotte Jones’s multi award-winning play Humble Boy transferred to the West End and
Broadway following a sell-out run at the National Theatre. Her other work includes The
Lightning Play at the Almeida Theatre, The Dark at the Donmar Warehouse and Martha,
Josie & The Chinese Elvis (UK tour).
Director Natalie Abrahami makes her debut at Chichester; her recent productions
include Queen Anne (RSC/West End) and Happy Days (Young Vic). She was Artistic Director
of the Gate Theatre, Notting Hill from 2007 – 2012, and Associate Director at the Young Vic.
