    “There are noises in the room, things creak, footsteps on the stairs, out in the corridor, I think it’s him, every time I think it’s him. They say he’s dead but what if he’s not?”

    Billy is violent, disturbed and sexually dominating. He controls his wife and two adult daughters to the extent that they can't leave the room without asking permission: the women are there to service him and his insanity. One day his family shoots him dead. 'Five Kinds of Silence' shows a distorted world of madness, control, and despair through the eyes of dead Billy and those of his family, struggling to understand reality outside their stifling tomb.

    A harrowing, yet provocative physical theatre production.
