Anthony Weigh casts new light on Vercors’ testament to the enduring power of the human spirit in his new version of The Silence Of The Sea.

Set during a time of conflict, The Silence Of The Sea tells the story of a soldier, who 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.

Written in 1942, this exquisitely constructed human drama examines an excruciating dilemma faced by both the occupier and the occupied.

Playing at part of the final Donmar Trafalgar season, which showcases work from graduates of the Donmar’s Resident Assistant Director programme, The Silence Of The Sea is directed by Simon Evans, who has worked on productions of Richard II, Inadmissible Evidence, Anna Christie, Luise Miller, Moonlight and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the Donmar Warehouse.
