Bluets image

“Suppose I were to begin by saying that I had fallen in love with a colour.”
Bluets is a story about depression and desire, pleasure and pain, and a person possessed by a lifelong obsession with the colour blue. Communing with artists like Joni Mitchell, Derek Jarman, Andy Warhol and Billie Holiday, blue is their constant companion as they navigate the devastating pain of a life-altering heartbreak.
Based on acclaimed author Maggie Nelson’s unique and electrifying book, Bluets is an adaptation by playwright Margaret Perry (Paradise Now!, Porcelain, Collapsible), directed by Katie Mitchell (Little Scratch, Anatomy of a Suicide).
Performed by Emma D’Arcy (House of the Dragon), Kayla Meikle (ear for eye) and Ben Whishaw (Cock, James Bond, This is Going to Hurt, Paddington).
Originally developed at Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg.
*Emma D’Arcy, Kayla Meikle and Ben Whishaw are scheduled to appear in every show.
