AND I AND SILENCE

AND I AND SILENCE

Written by Naomi Wallace

Directed by Rebecca Bradshaw


Jan 31- Feb 19, 2023

Dee and Jamie meet behind bars where they form a perilous bond and forge a plan for survival as they serve time. Their days fill with hope as they practice their soon-to-be plans. But after their worlds shift to life after incarceration, they learn the outside world is even more dangerous to their friendship than the jail itself. Exploring the fierce dreams of youth and the brutal reality of adulthood in 1950’s segregated America, And I and Silence is a dark yet playful, poetic portrait of desire, daring and survival.

Recommended for ages 14+
