The Silence of Snow | Leicester Square Theatre | 2-3 Dec (Pictured)
This is a portrayal of the rather turbulent life of British writer Patrick Hamilton, notable for his hit plays ‘Rope’ and ‘Gaslight’, and his novels ‘Twenty Thousand Streets Under The Sky’, ‘Hangover Square’ and ‘The Slaves of Solitude’. It’s an acclaimed, solo performance from the talented Mark Farrelly, who you may also have seen in his similarly solo Quentin Crisp bioplay a few years ago. Click here for details.

Response 2 Power | Old Red Lion Theatre | 3-4 Dec
And some more solo stuff for you here, too; this is an evening of solo performances of new writing, all written in response to the theme of power. The show, presented by Blink Theatre features six different pieces, created by a range of emerging writers, and directed by Lotte Ruth Johnson. Previous events have been very popular so quick, head this way to book your tickets.

Statements | King’s Head Theatre | 3 Dec
“Daniel is obsessed with Jazz, but the world is too loud a place to hear what’s going on. Javeed doesn’t understand a word, but happily communicates with anybody by smiling. Toby makes a lot of noise, but nobody seems to listen.” A piece of new writing that explores Asperger’s, Down Syndrome and misunderstood emotions, and promises to offer a snapshot of what it’s like to grow up with a learning difficulty.
