Donmar Warehouse’s Blindness: Audio Introduction

The audio-described introduction for the Donmar Warehouse’s sound installation Blindness, running from Monday 3 to Saturday 5 September, is available below in mp3 and Word format.

Blindness is based on the dystopian novel by Portuguese Nobel prize-winning author José Saramago (1922-2010), adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Walter Meierjohann. The hour-long ticketed installation runs four times a day, with seating arranged 2 metres apart in accordance with social distancing guidelines in a transformed auditorium. The audio introduction will not be played on-site because of the short time between each installation.

Tickets to attend the sound installation at Donmar Warehouse are now sold out, but it is possible to purchase the audio-described digital version of Blindness to listen at home.

The at home version features an audio recording of the sound installation including select audio description over several visual transitions that take place during the sound installation. There is also an accompanying Audio Introduction. The audio description was written and recorded by VocalEyes describer Julia Grundy.

Purchase the audio-described digital version of Blindness  (£12). You will be sent an email including a link to the audio file  or the day after you make your booking. This is available to purchase until Saturday 5 September, and can be listened to until Saturday 12 September.
