Returning playwright David Martin raises the profile on mental health issues and survival against the odds at this year’s Bath Fringe Festival, on route to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018.

Softsod Productions presents…


It’s going to spread like an infection.

In association with director Jacqs Graham, playwright David Martin is making a return to the Bath Fringe Festival, delivering yet another high quality, one-act psychological drama.

As funeral bells chime, a mysterious woman whispers a terrible secret to a grieving wife. Years later, now in therapy, the woman pieces together the jigsaw of her life, the damning relationship with her father and the disturbing truth behind that secret whisper.


Written by David Martin, directed by Jacqs Graham and featuring Lucy Elzik and David Martin, UnSpoken, is a dark and thought-provoking, but ultimately uplifting tale of survival against the odds. It raises the profile on childhood abuse, the challenges of emotional turmoil and our very human search for truth, acceptance and resolution.

Director, Jacqs Graham says…”this is our second Softsod production specialising in topical, relevant and thought-provoking drama. UnSpoken will appeal to those seeking intelligent, beautifully crafted, meaningful theatre.” Writer David Martin adds “The play is a mysterious, sometimes darkly comedic and often moving journey of self-discovery. In the hands of outstanding Director Jacqs Graham and alongside fellow creative and actor Lucy Elzik, it aims to capture the very essence of the Fringe in this piece of edgy, evocative theatre.”
