Silence: The Adventure of a Medieval Warrior Woman is a wickedly funny, plot-twisting tale of greed, lust, deceit, revenge, and the rewards and sacrifices that come from finding your true voice. Based on a story written in the 13th century, and adapted for 21st-century audiences, Silence tells of a girl raised as a boy to protect her inheritance, since women were not allowed to inherit property in the England of the day. At crucial points in her life, the story’s main character — a kind of 13th-century Annie Oakley — must choose the weapon with which she’ll face the world: a jeweled sword or a sewing needle. Which would you choose?
