The Acclaimed Donmar Warehouse Experience
To Open in New York City This Fall
Based on the Novel by Nobel laureate José Saramago
Adapted by Tony Award winner Simon Stephens
Directed by Walter Meierjohann
Produced by Daryl Roth
Blindness is a socially distanced sound narrative, with immersive binaural sound design by Ben and Max Ringham. Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson voices the Storyteller/Doctor’s Wife in this gripping story of a world changed forever in the blink of an eye by an unimaginable global pandemic.
At the Donmar Warehouse, Blindness proved to be an exceptional opportunity for appreciative patrons to come together and witness its urgent and timely message. Just as it was presented in London, attendees in New York will hear the narrative unfolding around them through binaural headphone technology while surrounded by immersive lighting and atmospheric design and experience together, safely, the importance of community in our present moment and a reminder of the hopeful end that lies ahead.
