The Unspoken, a powerful play by Jody Medland, will take the stage at Barons Court Theatre from 10th-22nd September. The piece tackles the effects of classism in 1972 Britain through its protagonist, Jimmy, a Northern coal miner. Jimmy has invented a whole life for his blind daughter, fooling her into believing they lead a luxurious existence. At first glance, this seems like abusive behaviour, but we slowly come to understand that his actions were meant to protect her.
The play was developed around the theme of class and its effects on our society and was shortlisted by Actor Awareness, a group dedicated to promoting diversity and equal opportunity in casting.
