A teasingly entertaining two-part drama from one of the UK's leading playwrights, first performed in a co-production by Out of Joint and the Royal Court.
Blue Heart consists of two related short plays in which nothing is what it seems:
Heart's Desire. The long-anticipated return of a daughter from Australia by her parents and aunt is rehearsed over and over with different variations and outcomes - some comic, some brutal, some simply astonishing.
Blue Kettle. Forty-year-old Derek is a con-man who sets out to convince a series of women that he is the son they gave up for adoption. But something catastrophic is happening which disrupts and destroys the very fabric of their world.
'The play of the year' - Independent
'Substantial, provocative, immensely stylish works which create an unsettling mixture of wild laughter and profound unease... a major hit' - Telegraph
