The Braille Legacy

Age Restriction: Suitable for 5+.

Picture the scene at the beginning of the 19th century – a young boy is blind and as a result cannot communicate in the way in which others take for granted. So he takes matters into his own hands and creates Braille, something which has changed the lives of blind people on all corners of the globe. This man was Louis Braille and this new musical, The Braille Legacy, celebrates his life at the Charing Cross Theatre

As such audiences are taken back in time to the French capital of the early 1800s, where we meet Braille as he invents a new form of communication that can change the lives of blind people for the better. His story is told through the eyes of director Thom Southerland, with the Royal National Institute Of The Blind providing assistance. The result is a show that will stay in the mind long after the final curtain call.

Braille was born in France in 1809 and his blindness was caused by an accident in his father’s workshop. But he did not let his condition bring him down and his work has been an inspiration to people ever since. To this day he has a place in popular culture and he is remembered as a figure of hope.

So it is only fitting that he is honoured in London, with experienced performer Jerome Pradon bringing him to the stage in 2017 and ensuring a new generation of theatregoers know the name Louis Braille.

This Braille Legacy, penned by Sébastien Lancrenon (translated by Ranjit Bolt) and featuring music from Jean-Baptiste Saudrey, heads to the Charing Cross Theatre for performances beginning on Monday 10th April 2017.
