“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.”
