Award-winning show at the Baxter

02 November 2016

The Baxter Theatre welcomes Dead Yellow Sands, the award-winning one-person show written and performed by Graham Weir.

With sold-out shows at this year’s National Arts Festival, this minimalistic piece uses simple lighting design to help tell the story of lives lived.

“With this work I really wanted to examine the essence of theatre,” explains Weir. “I wanted one of the characters to be lit so that he was like a floating head, another character (a blind man) to be lit so that the audience experienced the blindness he talked about, and so on.”

Dead Yellow Sands will run from 1 to 26 November at 20:15 with matinees on Saturdays at 16:00.

An age restriction of 12 years applies. Parental guidance is advised.
