Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a London psychiatric hospital, an enigmatic patient claims to be the son of an African dictator—a story that becomes unnervingly plausible. An incendiary tale of race, madness, and a Darwinian power struggle at the heart of a dying NHS, Blue / Orange premiered in April 2000.

"Penhall creates as riveting and compelling a new chamber play as we have seen since Michael Frayn's Copenhagen."—Daily Mail

"Provocative, blackly funny ... (and) taut with thought-provoking ambiguity."—Independent

"Exuberant ... Penhall has the gift of making serious points in a comic manner and of conveying moral indignation without preaching ... Stinging satire."—Guardian

"Funny and irreverent ... Penhall's writing is vibrant throughout."—Independent on Sunday

An incendiary tale of race, madness, and a Darwinian power struggle at the heart of a Britain's deteriorating health service.
