“Christopher has been confined to a psychiatric ward for a month. He wants out. The problem is he still thinks oranges are blue. His doctor, convinced he needs help, wants to section him. The senior consultant thinks it's all a question of culture: at home in Shepherd's Bush, Christopher will be amongst 'people who think just like him'. And besides, it costs taxpayer money to keep Christopher in care.

Race, ethics, sanity and prejudice collide in Joe Penhall's exquisitely sharp 'state-of-the-nation' classic. Blue/Orange was first performed at the Cottesloe Theatre, National Theatre, in April 2000.”

“Joe Penhall has the rare gift of engaging both emotion and intellect and making you care desperately about the outcome” The Guardian
“Blue/Orange explores the connection between ethnicity and perceptions of mental health…it illuminates the way psychiatry can be strategic – and anatomises the politics of medical care.” Evening Standard (London)
“In the great way of comedy, Blue/Orange touches on great themes: self-advancement at the expense of others and perceptions of sanity.” The Independent (London)
