Play about silence has so much to tell

  • Garrick Theatre 16 Meadow Street Guildford Western Australia (map)

A famous young adult novel, inspired by a true story, comes to the Garrick Theatre stage this May.

Written by John Marsden (author of Tomorrow When The War Began) and directed by Gail Lusted, So Much To Tell You focuses on the 14-year-old Marina who withdrew into silence after she received a facial disfigurement in an accident. The play explores how family breakdowns can be emotionally destructive, as well as physical, and how emotional effects can be observed in many different ways. 

Marina is sent to a boarding school in the hope she will recover from her “anorexia of speech” and learns everyone has their own traumas to deal with but, until there is forgiveness and realisation, the emotional pain will carry on.
