What is the role of gender in Pinter's Silence?
Quick answer:There are a limited number of characters in the play, each with their own complex personality. The play is set in one room. It is dark and claustrophobic, which contributes to its tone of despair. The audience can only hear the main character’s thoughts and feelings about his past relationships and about his current relationship with Celia Moore. The main character, Peter Rumsey (Harold Pinter), is happily married to Ellen Barlow (Celia Moore) but he still has feelings for another woman, Celia Moore (Kit Heath). He thinks that sexual fidelity is boring and unexciting. Peter also believes that women cannot truly love men.
