Why It's Important: Theater By the Blind is the only acting troupe in the United States consisting solely of blind actors. Outside of TBTB's shows, our actors rarely have the chance to perform in plays. Similarly, traveling abroad as a visually impaired young person is a logistically difficult experience. As a blind person, straying beyond the familiarity of one's comfort zone is both daunting and challenging. With these two truths in mind, we aim to give these five youth the best of both worlds: the chance to travel internationally in a safe, nurturing environment, while simultaneously creating and performing in a theater production alongside blind peers in Wales.
