DOWNTON Abbey’s Robert Bathurst stars in Blue/Orange, an award-winning play by Joe Penhall which can be seen at the Opera House in Manchester from November 22-24.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe, Blue/Orange is the electrifying story of Christopher (Oliver Wilson), who believes a notorious military dictator is his father.
In the battle of wills, his psychiatrist Robert (Robert Bathurst) plans to thrust him back into the community, but a young doctor (Gerard McCarthy) thinks this is too soon.
A compelling and witty battle of freedom and ambition unfolds.
Joe Penhall wrote the original play 12 years ago, when it won an Olivier Award, a Critic’s Circle Award and the Evening Standard Award for Best Play, but it remains sharply relevant to modern day society.
