is a sharp study of the experiences of blindness as well as a picture of love trying to shut out the dark. At the start of this beautiful and moving play Richard, who has already lost the sight of one eye, brings the serene, blind Thomasina to his untidy flat. Over time their intense love for each other contrasts with his collapsing relationship with the insecure Jane. When he goes completely blind Richard rages impotently and he and Thomasina confront the basic question of how successfully two blind people can live in a world made for the sighted. Contains a tender scene with nudity.
