Part of Patrick Hamilton in Focus

Please note: This is a live, in-person theatrical performance

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 (which gave us the modern term 'gaslighting'), and classic novels Hangover 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, asking: why do so many of us get through life without feeling we ever truly knew another person?

'You won't be able to take your eyes off this magnetic actor Mark Farrelly. He inhabits the character of Hamilton with a blazing fluidity' - The Times
