The Valley of Astonishment

Directed by Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne.

Imagine a world where every sound has a colour. Where every colour has a taste. Where the number 8 is a fat lady.

This breathtaking new play explores the fascinating experiences of real people who see the world in a radically different light.

The Valley of Astonishment is a kaleidoscopic journey into the wonders of the human brain, inspired by years of neurological research, true stories and Farid Attar’s epic mystical poem The Conference of the Birds.

Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne return to the Young Vic after their international hit The Suit.
