Broken Silence


‘Broken Silence’ is an adult drama group of approximately 20 disabled participants with sensory and mobility impairments, mental health issues and learning difficulties.


Participants devise ideas using drama, movement and music with the aim of developing these ideas into a performance piece.

Once the performance has been agreed the weekly sessions become rehearsals leading to public performance.

Meeting Day and Time

Wednesdays (during term time) from 1-3 pm

Meeting Place

Park Avenue Disability Resource Centre
Ground Floor, 65c Park Ave, Enfield

Broken Silence was formed in 2003 to create a play about the institutional abuse of disabled people.

This was used as a training tool for health and social care professionals.

Since then the performances have been a mixture of issue-based and pure entertainment plays but always presenting life from the disabled person’s point of view and raising awareness for the audiences.

We produced original musicals in 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Equilibrium (2022)

The story takes place on the fictional island of Hanalei and the surrounding waters, with the film focusing on how the world on land and the world below the sea must live in harmony for the natural Equilibrium to be restored.

Originally conceptualised as a theatre production, the prolonged impact of the pandemic meant that it could not be performed in the summer of 2021, as originally planned. As a result, Face Front built a full-size professional Green Screen Studio in their existing premises in Edmonton to turn this stage show into a film.

The Myth of Marvo’s Millions (2019)

The story follows an unscrupulous hypnotist and fortunate teller who learn of a hidden treasure inside a travelling circus.

Using their magical skill and trickery they set out to find and steal these riches.

But they are eventually thwarted by the circus performers.

This attempted robbery is set against the backstage and interworking of a travelling circus.

Sandwich Man (2017)

An emergency summit has been called by politicians to find a solution to the global food shortage and they have turned to the most powerful beings on the planet - The Super Heroes.

Meanwhile on the other side of town Bill runs a hostel for the hungry and homeless.

In this uplifting and moving new musical Broken Silence transport the audience from the opulent super hero summit in a lavish hotel to Bill’s humble hostel and back again.

Will the Super Heroes provide the answers, or is Bill doing more to help the situation than all of the powerful and elite put together?

Our Island (2015)

This musical follows the lives of the Elder and his daughter, Innocent.

They are the only human inhabitants on a remote island with a whole host of extraordinary animals to keep them company.

This magical island has everything anyone could ever need; food, shelter, beautiful sunsets and safety.

As Innocent grows older she starts to ask questions about the world outside the island and dreams of meeting other human beings.

One day, to the Elder’s horror, explorers land on the island. Can the Elder keep his perfect life intact or will his daughter leave him to follow her dreams?

Our Island performed at The Dugdale Theatre, Enfield

ZAP! (2014)

This musical is a story of family, loss, appreciation and ultimately gratitude, told with music, dance and a time-travelling microwave oven.

A mother and her two sons go on an unexpected journey from present day back to 1940, war time Britain.
