Casting has been announced for The Silence of the Sea, which begins performances at London's Trafalgar Studio 2 Jan. 10, 2013, prior to an official opening Jan. 14, for a run through Feb. 2, as pat of the Donmar Trafalgar season.



Simon Evans, a former resident associate director of the Donmar Warehouse, directs Leo Bill, Simona Bitmaté and Finbar Lynch in Anthony Weigh's version of Vercors' play.

In a time of conflict, a soldier (Bill) is billeted to the home of an old man (Lynch) and his niece (Bitmaté). Powerless to turn him away, they resist him with silence - a silence that becomes their most potent weapon. According to press materials, the play examines an excruciating dilemma faced by both the occupier and the occupied.
