- Papatango New Writing Prize - 2021
Every teenager knows what it's like to be stuck between things: childhood and maturity, innocence and experience, hope for the future and uncertainty about what it might bring.
But Daize is torn between even greater challenges: her love for her vulnerable mother and her dangerous friendship with Ant. An outsider with knockout trainers, Ant has just appeared on her doorstep, bringing with him a whole world of trouble.
Tom Powell's play The Silence and The Noise beautifully captures the story of two young people on the edge.
Joint winner of the 2021 Papatango New Writing Prize, it was produced and premiered by Papatango and English Touring Theatre in 2021 as an audio play, presented to audiences via specially designed audio stations that toured UK theatres.
