Socially distanced sound installation take on José Saramago iconic novel

The Donmar Warehouse had the distinction of being the first theatre ‘back’ post-lockdown, by dint of staging a theatre show that's not actually a theatre show: adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Walter Meierjohann, ‘Blindness’, an adaptation of José Saramago’s hit novel about a pandemic (oh yes) that sends people blind is actually a sound installation, and while there is a (masked, socially distanced) audience, performer Juliet Stevenson’s role is entirely pre-recorded, playting oout on a sophisticated and unsettling sound design by Ben and Mac Ringham. ‘Blindness’ plays four times a day – at 1pm, 3.15pm, 6.15pm and 8.30pm (no 1pm on Aug 24-26).
