The Silence of Snow: The Life of Patrick Hamilton

Written and performed by Mark Farrelly

Directed by Linda Marlowe

Following his much-acclaimed performance of Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope at Ropery Hall last year, Mark Farrelly returns with his riveting, kinetic solo show portraying one of the great English writers of the inter-war years. Patrick Hamilton was a dazzling success in his twenties, producing hit plays Rope (filmed by Hitchcock) and Gaslight, and classic novels Twenty Thousand Streets Under The SkyHangover Square and The Slaves of Solitude.
.
But Hamilton was also an alcoholic, whose wit darkened as his inner and outer worlds collapsed. Covering the entire sweep of Hamilton’s thrilling life and writing, The Silence of Snow entertains and challenges in equal measure, asking audiences: why do so many of us get through life without feeling we ever truly knew another person?

Mark Farrelly’s West End credits include Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe, who also directed Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope.
