LANGUAGE OF THE MUTE
Writer: Jack Harte
Director: Liam Halligan
Cast: Jennifer Laverty, Marc Mc Cabe, Ciarán Mc Glynn, Michael O’Sullivan
This highly relevant, compelling play is a powerful exploration of how charisma can be used for unscrupulous purposes and how the inability to find the language to challenge it can shatter lives.
Ex-pupils invade a Dublin classroom to confront their former teacher, whose actions have had a profound effect on them. Now he must be called to account so that the past can be confronted and futures faced.
This multi-layered drama takes the audience on an emotional roller-coaster where secrets are revealed and sacred cows held up to scrutiny; where young love is re-kindled and idealism endures.
