Close your eyes as live music, sound effects and smells swirl
around you awakening your senses. David, an old sailor with
failing sight, mops a leak in his kitchen all night during the floods.
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?
All the sound is generated live by the performers using the props
of old fashioned radio drama (wind machines, gravel boxes, false
doors…) and moves around the audience, putting you in the centre
of the action. Performed by the multifaceted musician and sound
designer Roger Gregg, and actor Karl Quinn, a virtuosic Carpet
Theatre regular. Audience with sight loss can enjoy this play in the
dark, while optional blindfolds are provided for sighted audience.
Some audience reactions to the play
”Inventive, clever, mischievous and funny ….fabulous experience’
‘Because I couldn’t see… I felt as if I was there’
Packs a real emotional punch…very impressive show!”
