Learning Through The Arts presents Silent Screams; a captivating story of courage, resistance and self–sacrifice. Written by Ademola Adeniji and Directed by Sally Barnard.
Set in Nyasaland (Malawi) in 1917, a church minister’s attempt to stop the forced conscription of local men into the army brings him in conflict with the might of the colonial authority.
Through a blend of audience participation, African drumming, and physical theatre, the audience are taken on a journey based on a true story less told.
Silent Screams brings to the fore the involvement of Africans in the Great War, just as it replicates the conflict amongst European powers in their African colonies.
“Very engaging play with great performances and the live African drum was a great touch which added to the atmosphere.”
“Thought provoking and interactive, engaging and emotional.”
“Gave me a glimpse into a true unknown story. Well thought out and put together. Well done!”
