PRODUCTION NOTES

Crystal Clear Photo Gallery >

As one of Richard's relationships falters, another, with the blind Thomasina, blossoms. But Richard must confront an illness that threatens his own sight.

Phil Young’s award-winning Crystal Clear confronts the basic question of how successfully two blind people can live in a world made for the sighted.

This passionate and intense story is a sharp study of the experience of blindness as well as a picture of love trying to shut out the dark.

Crystal Clear, a devised piece originally staged at the Old Red Lion Theatre, won Phil Young the most promising playwright gong at the Evening Standard theatre awards in 1983.

"A harrowing, desperately moving parable about human selfishness in the face of the unbearable cruelty of fate." - Sunday Express

"A play of great passion, wit and above all honesty." - Time Out
