Crystal Clear

Audio described in-house.

Art-dealer Richard is beginning to lose his sight. Evading issues with his health and his long-term girlfriend, Jane, Richard finds himself drawn to Thomasina, a poised and enigmatic blind woman. He’s even willing to tidy his over-stuffed flat for her.

But when his condition abruptly deteriorates, Richard and Thomasina’s intense connection is strained to the limit and his relationship with Jane collapses.

Crystal Clear is a heart-rending love story about coping with drastic change. White Deer Theatre presents a revival of Phil Young’s 1982 play in an intimate and immersive setting with integrated live audio description.

All performances are accessible to visually impaired audiences with integrated audio description. Touch tours, pick-up from the station and guide dog arrangements are available for all performances upon request through access ticket booking a day in advance.
