Taking place over one ordinary Tuesday in Peterborough, Patient Light examines the emotional journeys of daily life.

This emotional story explores our human need for aspiration and how to use the world’s frustrations to your advantage.

Patient Light is a brand-new audio sensory experience; audiences will listen to the show on headphones and experience an immersive sound design using binaural technology.

There will be seven performances across the two days and will then set out on a schools tour next year. Tickets from
