Crystal Clear

Sat 17 Aug
A raw and humbling examination of sudden loss and our attempts to cope with it. It tells a story of love undone by fear and self-destruction, and exposes our fundamental need for human connection
DETAILS

CRYSTAL CLEAR

Devised by Phil Young


"You can't see me. You're not seeing me. All you're seeing is my blindness."


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 present a moving revival of Phil Young’s 1982 play in an intimate and immersive setting.
