Description

A disquieting and darkly funny play which shines a light on the state of mental health services in modern Britain. Set in a psychiatric unit, Blue looks at both sides of mental-health care – those who receive it, and those who give it. It explores the difficulties and complexities of life under observation, and shows how beautiful moments can be found even in the most fragile of circumstances. Content guidance: This play contains strong language, and exploration of adult themes including mental health, suicide and abuse.
