"Exuberant ... Penhall has the gift of making serious points in a comic manner and of conveying moral indignation without preaching ... stinging satire." — Guardian, London

 

In this startling new play, two psychiatrists battle over the diagnosis and treatment of an enigmatic young black man who claims to be the son of Idi Amin. As the doctors exchange accusations of racism and careerism, they reveal the insanity that lies at the heart of the mental health establishment. Blue/Orange has been called the most exciting new play of 2000 by The Financial Times and was the winner of the 2001 Olivier Award, the 2000 Critic's Circle Theatre Award, and the 2000 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
