Eyes Closed, Ears Covered by Alex Gwyther's (Our Friends, The Enemy) tells the brutal and heartfelt story of two teenage boys as they head to Brighton with a daring plan to relive a special day from four years ago. The world premiere of this darkly funny and painfully tender play will be directed by 2015 What's On Stage award winner, Derek Anderson(Sweeney Todd, Twickenham Theatre). BroadwayWorld has a peek at the cast in rehearsal below!

One in five children in the UK have been exposed to domestic violence. Eyes Closed, Ears Covered explores the repercussions of traumatic events at home and the direct effects these can have on mental health. EastEnders' star Danny-Boy Hatchard, Joe Idris-Roberts (Forty Years On, Chichester Festival Theatre) and Phoebe Thomas (Hetty Feather, Vaudeville Theatre, The Rose Theatre Kingston and UK Tour), will form the original cast of this gripping thriller.

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."
