SILENCE - A storytelling performance by Rachel Rose Reid
Lost for 700 years - An Epic Story Speak Out
In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence. It was discovered in Wollaton Manor, Nottinghamshire, in a box marked Old Papers - No Value (buried under a few letters from King Henry VIII.)
A legend had been patiently waiting, for seven hundred years.
But it was 1911. Suffrage protests were at their explosive height. And this story suggests that England's wellbeing depends on a quest for gender equality. So the manuscript was kept silent.
But the story was made to be told.
Now is the time to tell it.
Rachel Rose Reid has split the epic of Silence into a trilogy. Join us on a journey to restore and revive at
