BLUE/ORANGE TO CLOSE 15TH DEC 01

Joe Penhall's Blue / Orange is to close at the Duchess Theatre on 15th Dec 01, (The show was originally booking to 5th Jan 02).

Directed by Roger Mitchell, the play originally opened at the Cottesloe., Royal National Theatre in April 00 to Aug 00. It then transferred to the Duchess Theatre in April 01 with the original cast of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bill Nighy and Andrew Lincoln.

The show received good notices from the popular press... "Superbly acted in the round" (The Stage); "The play is humorous and notably compassionate" (The Times); "Minor cavils aside, this will most likely prove to be the best play of the year" (Daily Telegraph).

The story is set in a London mental hospital, where an enigmatic patient claims to be the son of an exiled African dictator. As the drama unfolds, his story becomes unnervingly plauisible. This is an incendiary tale about race, madness and a Darwinian power struggle at the heart of a dying NHS.

The play currently features David Threlfall, Neil Stuke and Shaun Prices.
