Quiet Hands

Winterlight Theatre

Written by Tim Rhys 

Directed by Chris Durnall

What do you do when your home is invaded by your new best friends? When they’ve become your only friends in a world where looks in the eye and tones of voice have a thousand meanings you can’t follow?  After their last, sold-out Chapter visit, Winterlight’s new play follows a young autistic man confronting the dangerous rise of ‘Mate crime’.

Quiet hands is the concluding part of a trilogy of plays dealing with the life of an autistic individual from child to adult

Comments on the previous plays in the trilogy…

“Had my stomach in knots” (New Welsh Review) 

“Melancholic beauty… Raw and unflinching… blackly comic dialogue” (Theatre in Wales)

“Stunning piece of theatre” (Sara Beer, Arts Disability Wales)

Tickets: £12/£10

Running time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins + interval

Age 14+ 

There will be a post show talk on Tuesday 12
