Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens has adapted Nobel Prize-winner José Saramago’s dystopian novel Blindness as a sound installation.

Directed by Walter Meierjohann and with immersive binaural sound design by Ben and Max Ringham, Juliet Stevenson voices the Storyteller/Doctor’s Wife in this gripping story of the rise and, ultimately, profoundly hopeful end of an unimaginable global pandemic.

“Artistically and technologically pioneering… Stevenson relays the story with her usual impeccable verbal poise” – Daily Telegraph
