Indoor theatre returns to Toronto this week as Mirvish presents Blindness.

The audio-based stage show has an eerily timely premise about a pandemic but was actually developed before COVID-19.

Blindness begins performances at the Princess of Wales Theatre Wednesday, making it the first indoor theatre presentation in the city since the pandemic shut down such venues nearly a year and a half ago.

Audience members sit masked and socially distanced onstage with sanitized headphones listening to the narrator who is the only character to retain her sight as a pandemic of blindness spreads in Europe.

Mirvish previously announced it will stage two shows at the CAA Theatre this Saturday and Sunday featuring English comedy star Eddie Izzard and a preview of Charles Dickens Great Expectations.

Profits from the weekend shows will be donated to a national Indigenous registered charity.
