The Sleepless Ones (working title)

Currently in development is a new work by ViSiBLE exploring the challenges of sleeplessness in later age and increasingly at all ages

Sleep doctors have called it the silent epidemic, with 10% population now estimated as suffering from insomnia.

Writer Sonja Linden will work with Visible Associate Artist, acclaimed director Mike Alfreds, and an ensemble of distinguished older actors to co-create a piece of imaginative theatre exploring sleep, dreams and sleeplessness across a single night in the life of a number of characters.
