Hitchin play promises a “roller-coaster ride”
A PLAY which demonstrates comedy in a brilliantly discomforting way opens later this month.
Written by Joe Penhall (Dumb Show), Blue/Orange opens at Hitchin’s Queen Mother Theatre on January 20 for a three-day stint.
The story, which revolves around a patient who claims he is the son of an exiled African dictator, gained recognition from critics when it was first staged almost ten years ago and won an Olivier award, Evening Standard award and Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
Director Stewart Thomas said: “Blue/Orange will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, questioning your own perception of race, class, mental illness and patriarchy.
“The audience will feel empathetic, frustrated as well as amused and ultimately find themselves still thinking about the play days later.”
