Then Silence

The Ibsen Award winner Arne Lygre’s “Then Silence” is presented for a second time in the UK at Tristan Bates Theatre in July.

Three boys stand stranded. They are caught somewhere between a ruined reality and a hopeful dream. Producing fragments of the past or visions of a future, re-imagining their world is the only way to keep them from sinking. In this ongoing game of survival they push each other to the brink and ultimately fight to be the last man standing.

Then Silence is a disquieting play that searches for hope in a collapsing world. Can we change the course of our lives? Do we sink or swim?

Arne Lygre has stepped into the elite of Norwegian authors. Then Silence firmly confirms his position
