About This Show

Ben Jonson’s The Silent Woman is the story of aptly-named Morose, an old bachelor with a severe aversion to noise, who marries a ‘silent woman’ to deny his nephew a substantial inheritance. When the quiet lady turns out to be anything but, the stage is set for gender-bending and boisterous antics. With biting wit and sharp satire, Jonson considers what it means to be a man, to be a woman, indeed to be human, but without voice. Michael Kahn directs.
