Edith Cavell – Facing The Silence

“Standing as I do in view of God and eternity, I realise that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.”

It is 1915. English nurse, Edith Cavell, has been captured by the Germans and accused of treason. She has faced sixty days of near solitary confinement, interrogation and now a trial. Surely the Germans will not execute a woman?

Yet, Edith Cavell is facing another trial, alone in her cell. Sixty days alone with nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Edith Cavell is facing the silence.

Set in Edith’s prison cell in Brussels, this one-woman play sets out to find meaning in her trials, discovering who she is and why she lived, how she travelled from a quiet Norfolk parish to a prison cell in Brussels.

This play toured from 2015 to 2017
