‘Funny, fresh and appealing.’
★★★★ Telegraph

‘Brief, bright, exquisite… a fine piece of writing.’ ★★★★ Scotsman

Following sell-out performances in London and Edinburgh, and an acclaimed run at the Jagriti Theatre, India, smash-hit Blink returns for a 2014 tour of the UK and the US (New York).

Blink is the tale of Jonah and Sophie. It’s a love story. A dysfunctional love story, but a love story all the same.

Against the lonely backdrop of London, the worlds of two shy individuals collide, and a charming, delicate and darkly funny story unfolds before your eyes.

Directed by Soho Theatre Artistic Associate and nabokov Artistic Director Joe Murphy, Blink was originally written and developed right here at Soho Theatre, as part of the Soho Six project.
