Edith Cavell: Facing The Silence

Edith Cavell: Facing The Silence
Edith Cavell Facing the Silence
by John Mangan
directed by Glenda Campi

It is 1915. Norfolk nurse, Edith Cavell, has been captured by the Germans and accused of treason, while running a teaching hospital in Brussels. She has faced sixty days of near solitary confinement, interrogation and now a trial. Surely the Germans will not execute a woman?

Yet, Edith Cavell (performed by Naomi Clasohm) is facing another trial, alone in her cell. Sixty days alone with the only person who knows who Edith Cavell really is – herself. Edith Cavell is facing the silence.

Set in Edith’s prison cell in the St Gilles Prison on Brussels, John Mangan’s play explores the life and trial of this trailblazing woman. A pioneer of nursing training, with a strong sense of duty, Edith found herself trapped in an occupied country surrounded by an English hating German Military hierarchy.
