Presented by the Bunker Theatre and Alfred Taylor-Gaunt, the World Premiere of Alex Gwyther‘s new play, EYES CLOSED, EARS COVERED, will run at the Bunker Theatre from 6 to 30 September, directed by Derek Anderson.
The production will star EastEnders’ Danny-Boy Hatchard, Joe Idris-Roberts and Phoebe Thomas.
Eyes Closed, Ears Covered is a gripping new thriller following two teenage boys as they head from Woking to Brighton with a daring plan to relive a special day from their past.
Seb, a lonely boy who lives in his own world, is bullied at school and longing for friendship. When he is taken under the wing of Aaron, an explosive and unpredictable teenager with no fear, they set off on an adventure that unravels the secrets from Seb’s dark past and the truth about his mother.
Eyes Closed, Ears Covered explores how trauma and overwhelming experiences can directly affect vulnerable young minds with shattering consequences.
Danny-Boy Hatchard comments:
“Having had previous experience venturing into the mind of someone who struggles with mental health, I have gained a compassionate understanding into how such a condition can have a dramatic impact on an individual’s life. Eyes Closed, Ears Covered explores more of the same, but this time with a direct association to domestic violence, particularly in children. I believe as artists we can always afford to bring more awareness to such an important topic, and this show does just that.”
