The Silence of Snow

Mark Farrelly plays playwright and novelist Patrick Hamilton in this one-man show about Hamilton’s life that I saw at the Old Red Lion Theatre. The Silence of Snow sees Hamilton awaiting ECT in a hospital room in the hope that it will cure his depression. With wry charm the writer takes us on a journey from his childhood to his presence in this room, covering his difficult father, his troublesome relationships with women and his writing career. Farrelly’s performance is compelling, and this production should be a must-see for any fan of Hamilton.
