Sound&Fury's Going Dark

5-9 March 2014
Book tickets now

Produced by Fuel
Written by Hattie Naylor in collaboration with Sound&Fury

How far can you see? A mile? A hundred miles? Or to the furthest shores of the universe to a faraway galaxy? It’s Max’s job to ask the cosmic questions. Passionate about astronomy, he works as the narrator at the city’s Planetarium where he challenges his audiences with the mysteries of stars and science.

When his own life takes an unexpected turn, Max discovers that understanding the universe requires a different kind of vision.

Following two sold out runs at the Young Vic in 2011 and 2012, Sound&Fury bring their innovative theatre vocabulary of immersive surround sound design, total blackout and imaginative lighting to the Science Museum, to reawaken our wonder at the cosmos and reveal how one man’s vision becomes illuminated by darkness.
