    Cigarettes & Chocolate
    By Anthony Minghella

    23:00, Wed 3rd February 2010 - Sat 6th February 2010 at ADC Theatre
    Lent Week 3

    “There is neither rhyme nor reason, just tears, people’s pain, rage, aggression…and silence.”

    What would you do if your best friend, daughter, lover - suddenly, completely out of the blue - just stopped speaking?

    Oscar winner, Anthony Minghella’s bitter sweet play ‘Cigarettes & Chocolate’ debates how language effects what it means to be human. Gemma’s stopped speaking. Her vow for Lent is total silence. No one knows why and she’s not about to explain herself. Watch her friends, family, unrequited, and unfaithful lovers react to this negation of words themselves.

    This is a dark comedy about the threat of silence to the superfluous, trivial conversations of modern life. Infidelity, intimacy and indifference, laugh or cry, Gemma won’t say a word.
