A new musical about the astonishing and inspiring life of Nicholas Saunderson, a blind man from Penistone who – despite all the barriers – became a professor at Cambridge, a peer of Sir Isaac Newton, and teacher in the study of optics.
It is 1682. With no eyes and no braille, he is humilated and rejected at every turn. Can an emerging genius with numbers confound those who seek to repress him? Set against the contrasting earthiness of Yorkshire and the dreaming spires of Cambridge, No Horizon is a tale of courage, aspiration, love and overcoming adversity.
Please note: the Friday performance will be audio described and accessible for audiences that are blind or partially sighted.
"A pleasure to be among the first to see an epic story of succeeding against the odds" Edinburgh Reporter
