Storyline

Based on interviews with over 100 people affected by Domestic Violence in the UK, Silent Voices tells there stories using 7 characters performing integrated monologues. Raj a 10 year old boy tells his tale of how his mother and him get away from the violence of his father and the associated attachments to a black Caribbean family as he moves from home to a refuge. Chelsea a 13 year old girl, who loves her father and mourns the loss of her CD's and friends as her Mother drags her from Refuge to Refuge until her inevitable return home. Jezza a 16 year old trainee hairdresser, remembers her time with her mother and father as they battled through her childhood. Her chilling realisation that her Mother was killed by her Father as she watched leaves her character coming to terms with the horror. Bev a 19 year old prostitute and drug addict explains how she has ended in her current predicament in an attempt to escape the violence her father an RAF officer perpetrated on her mother. Summer, ... Written by Paul Atherton

"Boy, can this girl write!"
7 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A stark drama that is a strong yet accurate portrayal of the damage done in violent relationships. 'Silent Voices' tells it like it is and does not pull any punches - will tug at the heartstrings of those affected by Domestic Violence and sit back and do nothing. The actors pull us right into the script and make the words real. Director Charles Harris has treated a difficult subject with sensitivity and a light touch. These two should go far as a team. The whole thing was written and shot in under 20 weeks - a tough call on all the players, but they have pulled it off. Producer Paul Atherton yanked the lot together on a pretty low budget. He shows just what can be done if you really want something. A brilliant first drama.
