Woking 1986. Seb and Aaron have been planning this day for weeks. They’ve forged their sick notes. They’ve saved, scraped and stolen the money where they can. They've scrubbed their hands clean of any evidence... and now they're actually going to do it.
Eyes Closed, Ears Covered explores the effects that domestic violence can have on a young person's mental health. Two teenage boys are seemingly caught up in a harmless quest to Brighton. Yet as their story progresses, a series of entwining police interviews reveal the dark truth of a hidden past that lies behind this innocent adventure.
Eyes Closed, Ears Covered opened at The Bunker Theatre in September 2017.
