This witty and engaging tribute to a great English writer is written and performed by Mark Farrelly, whose West End credits include Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly.

He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe.


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 Sky, Hangover Square and The Slaves of Solitude.

But Hamilton was also an alcoholic, whose wit became increasingly mordant as his inner and outer worlds collapsed.

Covering the entire sweep of Hamilton's turbulent 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?
