Acclaimed actor Mark Farrelly presents 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), Gaslight, and classic novels like Hangover Square.
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, 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, and his hugely successful solo play Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe.
