Five Kinds of Silence
Billy controls his wife and two adult daughters to the extent that they can't leave the room without asking permission.

Three sisters; Teresa, Mary and Catherine, come together before their mother's celebration that she is dead, each haunted by their own demons; in which the play focuses more on how each sister deals with the death and how it directly affects them.

As the three women get together after years of separation, all their hidden lies and self-betrayals are about to reach the surface.
