A live multi-sensory audio play in the dark for people who are blind and sighted to enjoy together.
Devised by Ciarán Taylor with Karl Quinn and Roger Gregg
Close your eyes as the inventive Carpet Theatre brings you a fascinating play in the dark, where live music, sound effects and smells swirl around you. It’s the floods of 2011. David, an old sailor with failing sight, mops a leak in his kitchen all night. His family are out of reach and the Council are too busy to help. As the rain pours and the waters rise, a lifetime of memories flows through his head. Struggling to keep mind and body together, can he weather the storm and plot his course to a new dawn?
Performed by Crazy Dog Audio Theatre veteran Roger Gregg and actor Karl Quinn, using the props of old fashioned radio drama. Suitable for audience with sight loss. Optional blindfolds provided.
