Wilton’s Music Hall has announced its new season with highlights including a blindfolded Beckett play directed by Max Stafford Clark.

Running from 22 March to 9 April, Samuel Beckett's All That Fall will be transformed by Out of Joint into a 360° live sonic experience. Audiences will be blindfolded as the cast move about them in the auditorium, their voices heard through a surround-sound design.

The multi award-winning Mark Bruce Company will also feature in the season with their new production The Odyssey running from 23 February to 19 March. Following their sell-out production of Dracula at Wilton's in 2013, The Odyssey will see the dance-theatre group perform a re-telling of Homer’s epic poem.

Other highlights include The Faction – Transformations (12 to 15 January), adaptations of Cervantes’ Dialogue, Goethe's Faust and Kafka’s The Metamorphosis into three solo performances and Bottom’s Dream (28 January) a variety show of monolgues, poems and dance inspired by Shakespeare’s Fairy Tales.

Wilton’s Music Hall is the world's oldest surviving grand music hall and announces its season after a four-year transformation to rebuild the hall.
