THE SILENCE OF SNOW: THE LIFE OF PATRICK HAMILTON

November 30, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

Written and Performed by Mark Farrelly (Howerd’s EndQuentin Crisp: Naked Hope and Jarman)
Directed by Linda Marlowe 

Mark Farrelly’s riveting, kinetic solo show portrays 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 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
★★★★ “Farrelly’s performance is electric” What’s On Stage
★★★★ “Horrifyingly funny snapshot of the wit, novelist and playwright… brilliant” The Spectator
