In the Dark by Sightless Cinema

A man in his thirties hopes to regain his sight in a transplant operation, another loses his in a matter of weeks, while one young girl dreams of riding a bicycle again after her brain operation, another faces a cruel medical system, and a young man must go to a cliff edge in Wales to find his limits.

Sightless Cinema under the direction of theatre-maker Ciarán Taylor, is based at Rua Red since 2017. They presented two programmes of surround sound plays at IMC Cinema Tallaght. In 2020 they moved online to make lockdown comedy The Covid Tapes, and presented Ballymuck Exchange - a telephone comedy, at a listening event in the Civic Theatre in 2021.

Ciarán Taylor also creates original theatre with his Carpet Theatre, including the recent Breath-a music play which played at The Civic Theatre on a national tour in 2022. Roger Gregg is a writer for radio, voice performer, sound designer, and musician. He created many radio dramas for RTÉ, including live productions with his Crazy Dog company. He performed in The Flood- a live audio play in the dark, devised with Ciarán Taylor which toured Ireland including The Civic Theatre in 2016.
