    Race, madness and medical ethics collide in Joe Penhall's Olivier award-winning, exquisitely sharp modern classic.

    About this event

    Christopher stands on the cusp of release from a psychiatric ward. The problem is he still thinks oranges are blue. Psychiatrists Robert and Bruce are juggling the moral compass between their own personal and professional gain as they argue over whether Christopher should be released back into society. Bruce believes he still needs professional help whereas Robert, his senior, feels he would be better placed amongst 'his community'...and besides 'he'll be less of a drain on resources'.

    Stinging satire, burning writing and vibrant humour, this Olivier award-winning play asks the questions about mental health, ethnic prejudice and the stigmas around schizophrenia.

    Stuart Halusz, Artistic Director THEATRE 180, says, “I am thrilled to be directing a stellar cast in this compelling modern classic which challenges our notion of ethnic prejudice and mental wellness in society."

    Blue/Orange was first performed in the Cottesloe auditorium of the Royal National Theatre, London, on 7 April 2000.
