ABOUT THE FLOOD: A PLAY IN THE DARK

Close your eyes as live music, sound effects, and smells swirl around you, awakening your senses. 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? Audience with sight loss can enjoy this play in the dark. Optional blindfolds provided.
