John O’Donovan’s two-hander If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You returns to London as part of this year’s Vault Festival.
Alex Gwyther’s Eyes Closed, Ears Covered is a slippery play that continuously raises questions. We’re immediately presented with Alyson Cummins’ concrete-grey, angular set, suggestive of a brutalist play park in a rundown housing estate.
Eyes Closed, Ears Covered director Derek Anderson recalls the initial impression the script had on him and how sensitively he and author Alex Gwyther tackled the play’s themes around domestic abuse and mental health.
The world premiere of Eyes Closed, Ears Covered by Alex Gwyther tells the brutal and heartfelt story of two teenage boys as they head to Brighton with a daring plan to relive a special day from four years ago.
