Road to Valhalla

There's laughter in Silence, Undermain's play about Saxon violence

Ymma does get to speak perhaps the most telling and politically significant line in Silence. Having ditched her dresses for men's clothes during the road trip, Ymma dreams aloud of a day when women are deemed equal with men, which would give women the right to drive their own wagons.

"One day, maybe 100 years in the future, maybe 200," Ymma says, staring into the middle distance, "all women will be driving loaded carts up hills."

You said it, sister.

Serf's up: In the medieval comedy Silence, lovely Ymma of Normandy (Allison Darby) gets a rise out of Eadric Longshaft (Todd Haberkorn).
