About

Silent Generation emerges from interviews withBritish Elders born 1925-45; an era when children should be seen-and-not-heard, and when it often felt dangerous to speak out politically. Now in their 70s-90s, are the Silent Generation heard today?

The play was born out of research into Britain's older generation following a public rift between the oldest and youngest voters in the UK at the outcome of the 2016 EU Referendum. Alarmed by inflammatory headlines advising that ‘older people shouldn’t be allowed to vote’ and seemed to ‘have stolen our futures’, StrikeUp sought to create a project to challenge perceptions and inspire some cross-generational debate.

In partnership with Age UK Berkshire and the Museum of Reading where audio recordings will be donated to the Oral History Archive later this year, StrikeUp first presented Silent Generation to a cross-generational audience at South Street Arts Centre in April 2019. Following a fantastic post-show debate and outpouring of powerful personal feedback, the show is now in development for touring.

Help us fund further interviews, rehearsals and tour bookings to develop Silent Generation to tour and get generations talking to each other!
