‘Broken Silence’ is an adult drama group of approximately 20 disabled participants with sensory and mobility impairments, mental health issues and learning difficulties.
Participants devise ideas using drama, movement and music with the aim of developing these ideas into a performance piece.
Once the performance has been agreed the weekly sessions become rehearsals leading to public performance.
Two pieces have been original musicals performed at the Dugdale Theatre in Enfield. ‘Sandwich Man’ is the latest, also performing there in July 2017.

Broken Silence was formed in 2003 to create a play about the institutional abuse of disabled people.
This was used as a training tool for health and social care professionals.
Since then the performances have been a mixture of issue-based and pure entertainment plays but always presenting life from the disabled person’s point of view and raising awareness for the audiences.
The last three productions have been original musicals.
This musical is a story of family, loss, appreciation and ultimately gratitude, told with music, dance and a time-travelling microwave oven.
A mother and her two sons go on an unexpected journey from present day back to 1940, war time Britain.
Our Island 2015
This musical follows the lives of the Elder and his daughter, Innocent.
They are the only human inhabitants on a remote island with a whole host of extraordinary animals to keep them company.
This magical island has everything anyone could ever need; food, shelter, beautiful sunsets and safety.
As Innocent grows older she starts to ask questions about the world outside the island and dreams of meeting other human beings.
One day, to the Elder’s horror, explorers land on the island. Can the Elder keep his perfect life intact or will his daughter leave him to follow her dreams?
