Actor Juliet Stevenson: Pandemic theatre

From Saturday Morning, 9:07 am on 13 March 2021

British actor Juliet Stevenson narrates Blindness, a major international, socially-distanced theatre experience coming to the Auckland Writers Festival.

Blindness is adapted from the novel of the same name by Nobel Laureate José Saramago and is the story of an epidemic that wipes out sight.

Juliet Stevenson has a long career in film, television and stage productions and a few years ago bought a double-decker bus to provide refugee children in Calais with a safe and dry day care centre.
