A Minute of Silence

4 Male, 4 Female

HW Freedman Price: $7.99

University graduate Barry has chosen to spend his life in the circus making and repairing the performers' shoes

Barry's parents employ psychologist Dora to "rescue" him

But they don't tell her that Barry is deaf

Dora struggles to come to terms with her own problems whilst under the illusion that it's Barry who needs help

Their sad and funny love story unfolds through dialogue, physical theatre and sign language

Told by an ensemble of eight actors, A Minute of Silence offers the audience a rare glimpse of the hearing world from the deaf point of view
