The Silence of the Sea

From 22/01/2013 at 19:45 to 02/02/2013 at 19:45

From 22 January to 2 February, The Donmar Warehouse theatre will present The Silence of the Sea, a play based on a short story by Vercors in a version by Anthony Weigh. 

The plot

In a time of conflict, a soldier is billeted to the home of an old man and his niece. Powerless to turn him away, they resist him with silence - a silence that becomes their most potent weapon.

This exquisitely constructed human drama examines an excruciating dilemma faced by both the occupier and the occupied. Donmar Associate Artist Anthony Weigh casts new light on Vercors’ testament to the enduring power of the human spirit.
