Some time ago, Screenstage Studios presented a short run of performances of A SILENT SHORE on stage in Glasgow to appreciative sell-out audiences. The narrative showed the tragic decline in health of the protagonist Thomas Miller, an eloquent young man with unfulfilled potential, who sadly was suffering from terminal cancer. His final decision was to complete an act of selflessness before his inevitable and tragic demise, which he successfully achieved with grace and good humour.
We are now planning an extended film version of this play once the Covid-19 lockdown eases up sufficiently to allow work to begin.
