Mr Rook’s Speak Easy Presents: Silence Part I by Rachel Rose Reid

Silence Part I
In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence. Inscribed in the 13th century, it was rediscovered in 1911 at Wollaton Manor, Nottinghamshire, in a box marked ‘Old Papers, No Value’.

But it was too hot to handle – suffrage protests were at their explosive height – and this ancient tale revealed how King Arthur’s own lineage depended on a quest for female freedoms.
So the legend was silenced once more.

But the story was made to be told.

Now is the time to tell it.

A tale of naughty trysts and gender shifts, chivalry and shade, nature and nurture, music, mayhem, and a ravenous Merlin on the trail of a juicy bit of steak.

“Immense skill and breathless conviction. There’s no faulting Reid’s command of her craft” The Times

Rachel Rose Reid is a UK-based storyteller who has performed around the globe and for BBC Radio 3, the Crick Crack Club, & Beyond the Border.
