Waiting for a guide who, unseen, lies dead amongst them, the blind sit out their fate. The 19th century masterpiece about blind patients lost in a forest is presented here in a stunning new version with a cast of blind and partially-sighted actors.
Blurring the line between fact and fiction, this unique reworking will offer a live experience like few others.
Based on the Play by Maurice Maeterlinck, Reworked and Directed by Jack McNamara
