SILENCE: Mabel & Alexander Graham Bell By Trina Davies Directed by Ron Jenkins

Alexander Graham Bell changed history and connected people around the world by inventing the telephone, but it could never connect one person: his wife, Mabel, who was deaf. How far will we go for the people we love? A beautiful (and true) love story about how we communicate.

Featuring: Kathleen O'Toole Ciarán MacGillivray Todd Hiscock Lindsay Thompson Alison Crosby Josie Sobol

“A flawless interpretation of Mabel’s mind…You are within it, listening, watching, and feeling the vibrations of sound waves around you.” - Stratford Festival Reviews

“If one of the intents of theatre – of any art, for that matter – is to give us entry into worlds we’d otherwise never inhabit, Silence: Mabel and Alexander Graham Bell succeeds splendidly.” - Artsfile Ottawa

Tickets: $27 (plus HST)
