Blue/Orange: Award-Winning Dark Comedy Finds Doctors at Odds
Dance Conservatory of Pasadena (Pasadena, CA)
Two psychiatrists — one a new, inexperienced doctor in the first month of his residency and the other, his well established mentor — square off in a clash of wills in Blue/Orange. An award-winning dark, edgy comedy from British playwright Joe Penhall (The Road, Enduring Love), Blue Orange centers on the diagnosis and treatment of a young man named Chris, who claims to be the son of African dictator Idi Amin. As Chris becomes a pawn in the doctors’ battles, you’re left wondering who, if anyone, is sane.
