Audiences will remember our successful 1996 production of Jonson's Volpone, starring Pat Carroll. The Silent Woman is the story of 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 boisterous antics. With biting wit and sharp satire, Jonson considers what it means to be a man, to be a woman and indeed to be human, but without a voice. Roaring with delicious surprise, this play features Ted van Griethuysen as Morose, Floyd King as Sir Amorous La Foole, David Sabin as Tom Otter, Ricki Robichaux as Epicoene, Nancy Robinette as Mistress Otter, Naomi Jacobson as Madame Haughty, Bruce Turk as Sir Dauphine Eugenie, Scott Ferrara as Ned Clerimont, Daniel Breaker as Truewit, Gregg Almquist as Sir John Daw, John Livingstone Rolle as Cutbeard, Hugh Nees as Mute and a Parson, and Nikki E. Walker as Madame Centaur.

The Shakespeare Theatre’s Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs a Washington, D.C. premiere of this wicked and elaborate farced called by the poet John Dryden the “most perfectly plotted of all comedies.” Audiences will remember our production of Jonson’s Volpone, winner of two Helen Hayes Awards. 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. A recent audience favorite as part of the Shakespeare Theatre’s ReDiscovery series, this play roars with delicious surprise.
