Billy is dead. So why isn’t he gone?
Mary and her daughters have been set free. The disturbed, abusive man who dictated their every move lies dead in a pool of blood and the women can start to live again. Or can they? It soon becomes apparent that Billy’s legacy and deep, dark, distorted world is still very much alive.
Five Kinds of Silence is an outstanding portrayal of the twisted love of a violent man for his family and the scars of abuse that form between the women under his control. Shelagh Stephenson’s hard-hitting drama will stir strong emotions in any audience.
