Inspired by Breughel’s famed painting, The Blind Leading the Blind, this
is the story of three men, blind from birth, making their way to Rome as
pilgrims. They are stopped by the one-eyed king, Lamprido. He tries to
help them, but they ignore his warnings about an upcoming danger.
What drew me to this play was the difficulty that came with having blind
characters: how would they move? how would they act? I also liked the
dark atmosphere of this play.
