It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed one of the many shows which youth theatre Chickenshed put out during the pandemic. In fact, their last released piece came out in May so apologies to them for getting to this so late on. As with some of their previously released pieces it’s one of their boldly reinvented Christmas shows, this time from 2012.
In the Absence of Silence is a compelling, heartbreaking but ultimately hopeful piece that will hopefully give courage to others who find themselves in the same situation.
The Absence of Silence is a frank examination of the impact of long-term physical and emotional abuse on women in relationships.
