Strike Up Theatre

Silent Generation

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Thu 25 Apr
Sold out


Strike Up Theatre give voice to Reading’s ‘Silent Generation’ in this provocative debut show. The play emerges from interviews with town residents born 1925-45; an era when children should be seen-and-not-heard, and it often felt dangerous to speak out politically. Now in their 70s-90s, are the Silent Generation heard today? With low social integration and little representation across television and social-media platforms, it doesn’t feel like it.

Strike Up invite all generations of the audience to participate in a post-show debate - see you there.
