Silence archive"It was a great tragedy. We were friends one day and enemies the next. I will take these things to my grave." The 1947 partition of the Indian subcontinent into India and Pakistan saw millions uprooted and resulted in unspeakable violence. It would shape modern Britain forever. Witnesses to this brutal moment in history live among us, yet the stories of that time remain shrouded in silence. 75 years later, Silence is a new play focused on communal storytelling - presenting a shared history inspired by the remarkable personal testimonies of people who lived through the last days of the British Raj. Commissioned to mark this major anniversary, Silence is adapted from Kavita Puri's acclaimed book Partition Voices: Untold British Stories and co-produced with Tara Theatre.
