Watch the Trailer

Extant’s unique casting of blind actors creates a new and exciting interpretation of this classic text. An elderly couple welcome a procession of invisible guests to their isolated home - an uncertain space where anarchy, ageing and anxiety collide. Who is the mysterious orator they all await? And what will their world-changing message be?

Experimental sound design creates a dynamic, shared experience for sighted and visually impaired audiences.

"a refreshingly ambitious show that brings absurdist theatre into the 21st century" - Disability Arts Online
