LA FIN DU SILENCE was a Semifinalist at Ashland New Play Festival and a Quarterfinalist at PlayPenn.
Situation: Journey Magazine, an on-line publication, gives voice to the stories of women and girls who have experienced sexual violence. The “journey” is from victim to survivor. Simone, a woman in France, offers her story – through email – to publisher Brian Carter. She spent her childhood as an orphan in a convent under the care of nuns. While on a trip to the circus with them, she was kidnapped and raped by three men. She will submit her story in three installments and name the rapists in the last. Brian and his staff are deeply affected by the power and pain Simone reveals as she breaks her silence. They and the audience are led on a gut-wrenching journey to a final bear trap at the end.
Subject Matter: Rape, Sexual Abuse, Nightmares
Note from the Playwright:
LA FIN DU SILENCE is a drama centering on rape and violence against women and girls. It explores the pain of women remaining silent in relation to the difficulty of ending the silence and confronting the abuse.
