Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).
Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.
Closed 5 Oct 2019

“I see you strong, I see you spinning on your own axis - full of life - full of joy.
I see you like me when I turned 18 - unfiltered - ready to conquer the world head held high - heart strong - I see you growing everyday.”
Michelle and Ruby look like any other mother and daughter.
They dance together, they sing together, fight with each other and hide from each other.
But as it approaches Ruby's birthday, Michelle wonders if perhaps she has been too hidden.
Inspired and informed by women who have lived through the criminal justice system, Somalia Seaton's latest play, I'd Rather Go Blind, is a tender exploration of what it takes to be a mother in a world that is closing in around you.
Background, advisory warnings
Age suitability: 14+
I'd Rather Go Blind is produced in celebration of the extraordinary women Futures Theatre and Somalia Seaton worked with throughout 2017.
