Editorial Reviews

Review

Thought-provoking without being abstract, historical without being condescending, Silence Not is a heady, beautifully written play. Worth reading several times, it strikes a lovely balance between poetry and reality, bringing to life a diverse cast of characters in a challenging time period. Cooper reminds us, in the closing lines, that true resistance to oppression comes from the act of love and to love wholeheartedly is the most radical act any person can commit. --Claire Rudy Foster, ForeWord Reviews

Rooted in early twentieth century Europe and strikingly similar to contemporary struggles all over the globe, Cynthia Cooper s Silence Not, A Love Story offers readers and audiences the always necessary integration of art and politics. She s a skillful playwright who uses history, with its relentless examination of our lives, as a rich source for theater. ---Judith Arcana poet, writer and scholar. She is the author of What if Your Mother, 4th Period English and Grace Paley s Life Stories, A Literary Biography

The strength found in unity is like no strength found elsewhere. "Silence Not, A Love Story" is a play following the trials and tribulations of a Jewish Woman and a Catholic artisan who join to oppose the rise of Nazism in the 1920s and 1930s. A love story that emphasizes the importance of love, "Silence Not, A Love Story" is a unique tale, solidly recommended for theater collections. --Midwest Book Review

For those who thrill at the possibilities of the proscenium arch, Silence Not offers the story of Gisa, a young Jewish woman, working with the labor movement during the rise of fascism in Germany. Open this book of startling depth, and cast and set the stage for your own production. Cooper tells the true story of Gisa and Paul, a radical Catholic, as they try to remain human during inhuman times. A ForeWord Magazine Book of Year Award Finalist.
