This 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 a sell-out hit at Soho Theatre and in Edinburgh in 2012.
Award-winning writer Phil Porter wrote and developed Blink right here at Soho Theatre, as part of the Soho Six project. Phil is currently under commission to the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal and Derngate Theatre, W11 Opera and York Theatre Royal. Soho Six sees six writers from contrasting backgrounds take up residency at Soho Theatre for around a year with the task of creating a piece of work for one of Soho’s stages.
