Imagine a world where every sound has a colour. Where every colour has a taste. Where the number 8 is a fat lady.
This breathtaking new play explores the fascinating experiences of real people who see the world in a radically different light.
The Valley of Astonishment is a kaleidoscopic journey into the wonders of the human brain, inspired by years of neurological research, true stories and Farid Attar’s epic mystical poem The Conference of the Birds.
