Glyn Cannon's brilliantly dark and mischievous debut
In this darkly witty exploration of love and relationships Cannon explores how much you need to see of someone to know they are worth "taking a chance on". After apparently seeing everything, Shona is to move in with her boyfriend Dan. Her chronically shy work colleague Edward however struggles to articulate his feelings when faced with the blind and erotic Maria. In an innovative staging, their respective evenings unfold simultaneously on stage, bringing illumination to all concerned.
ON BLINDNESS is published to tie in with a collaboration between three of the UK's cutting edge companies - Paines Plough, Frantic Assembly and Graeae - in a production at Soho Theatre.
