Blue/Orange
Presented by: The Phoenix: A Theatre Company
Joe Penhall's Olivier Award-winning Blue/Orange is a caustically funny play about race and the mental health system. In a London psychiatric hospital, an enigmatic patient (Rico Parker) claims to be the son of an African dictator--a story that seems unnervingly plausible. What begins as a battle of wills between a young idealistic doctor (David Whalen) and his jaded superior (Sam Tsoutsouvas) over the appropriate course of treatment for his patient, eventually turns into something altogether different. Andrew S. Paul, director; Mark Clayton Southers, producer.
