Editorial Reviews

This award-winning British play reminds one of Tod Browning's "Dracula," in which an attendant of a lunatic asylum turns to a nurse and says, "They're all crazy except me and you. And sometimes I have me doubts about you." In Blue/Orange, two psychiatrists fight over the fate of a black inmate who thinks he's the son of Idi Amin. Underlying the humor and conflict, pragmatism and idealism are at war. A superb three-man cast energetically plays the comic battle of wills before an appreciative studio audience. Effete Daniel Davis, familiar as Niles in TV's "The Nanny," steals the show by the strength of his personality and lyrical delivery. Fine writing, an important subject, and excellent performances make this a thinking listener's treat.

Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2001 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Blue/Orange sets the stage for a clash of wills between two psychiatrists: one is a new, inexperienced doctor just starting out, the other is his well-established mentor. The diagnosis and treatment of a young black man named Chris, who claims to be the son of African dictator Idi Amin, sparks a conflict between the two doctors. As Chris becomes a pawn in their battle, listeners are left wondering who, if anyone, is sane in this dark, edgy comedy.

Worth a listen

Great performances of a British play by an American cast. The accents were terrible though!
