More Information


Set against the backdrop of 1970s working-class Liverpool, Hush is the haunting story of a young girl’s coming of age. With honesty, humor and tenderness, Gillian Summers draws us into her strange yet familiar family, rich in dynamics, disco music and colorful characters. Central to the story is her unique relationship with her little sister Helen, the one person she can depend on amid the chaos.

Gillian Summers developed this piece during The Marsh’s 2006 Performance Initiative and presented an excerpt at The Marsh Festival Of New Voices. She grew up in Liverpool, UK, emigrated to Australia and in 1991 graduated from The Drama Action Centre in Sydney. Before coming to America, Gillian became involved in community and professional theatre in Australia and performed in a variety of outdoor physical theatre projects. Her solo performance piece Testosterone was performed at Belvoir Street’s Theatre Festival of New Work, In Sydney.
