Making Noise Quietly is a triptych of encounters, all played out beneath the shadow of war. In 1944 in Kent, a conscientious objector and a roaming artist find friendship as the Second World War rages on across the Channel. In 1982 in Redcar, North Yorkshire, a bereaved mother struggles with the memories of her son, lost in the Falklands War. In 1996, deep in the Black Forest in Southern Germany, a Holocaust survivor seeks to bring peace to a disturbed young boy and his violent stepfather. Adapted from Robert Holman’s acclaimed play of the same name Making Noise Quietly is a moving study of the effects of war and the deep scars left behind.
