Donmar Warehouse extends socially distanced production Blindness through September

The show has added two extra weeks of performances, following a sold-out run.

Donmar Warehouse has extended its new production of Blindness for two weeks, following a successful sold-out run. The production, which originally ran through 15 August, is now on sale through 5 September with four performances a day. 

Described as a "socially distanced sound installation," the production is based on the novel by José Saramago and is adapted by award-winning playwright Simon Stephens. The story follows an epidemic of blindness in a city in Europe that can't be contained no matter how the government tries. The installation is directed by Walter Meierjohann and sound design by Ben and Max Ringham. Juliet Stevenson voices the storyteller and the doctor's wife.

The hour-long production allows audiences to sit 2m from each other in the transformed Donmar Warehouse and listen to the story with headphones.
