- Three Weeks

What does it mean to have the right to speak, if you can somehow be prevented from using it?

This question is at the heart of ‘Speak No Evil’: a quietly provocative, deeply engaging production that explores the ways in which people are censored in what they say – and what they believe.

Told from the viewpoint of a young girl from Belarus, Europe’s last dictatorship, this three-person performance fuses spoken word with arresting elements of physical theatre to examine various degrees of oppression of speech: from the extreme of dictatorship, to attitudes towards women and even well-intentioned parental control.

Simply staged, beautifully written and outstandingly delivered, this is a captivating, original piece of theatre that ought to be heard.
