How many policemen does it take to cause the death of 1,000 people in custody? Apparently none. Justice is blind, but how deaf is it? Silent Cry, by Madani Younis, unashamedly tackles the issues that face a family that verge on imploding, and tells the story of a mother's journey that begins as her son's life ends. A death in police custody leads to an ordinary family looking for justice from a system that has no answers.
The story is based on true documented evidence and interviews. Each performance is followed by an after show discussion with the writer/director and cast. This is a bold piece with innovative use of music and movement, creating spectacularly gripping theatre. Silent Cry was produced by The Asian Theatre School and Red Ladder Theatre.
