Photo Flash: BLUE ON BLUE Begins Tonight at the Tristan Bates Theatre

You can't go crippling yourself in a caring society. They won't stand for it. BLUE ON BLUE is a visceral, poignant and darkly funny play by novelist and screenwriter Chips Hardy, directed by Harry Burton. The production will play the Tristan Bates Theatre (1a Tower Street, London WC2H 9NP) tonight 19th April to Saturday 14th May 2016. Press Night: is Thursday 21st April, 7.30pm. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in rehearsal below!

This witty and moving drama examines the subtleties and vagaries of self-harm and co-dependency. It tackles important questions that are all too easily shied after from, relating not least to the rehabilitation of ex-servicemen and ex-offenders. Badly wounded in action by friendly fire, army veteran Moss lives in a small flat with his highly- strung nephew Carver. When Marta, a young Eastern European carer, enters their tiny world the results are as disruptive as they are well-intentioned.

The cast is led by British Army veteran Darren Swift who lost both his legs in combat in Northern Ireland. Alongside him are Daniel Gentely and Ida Bonnast.

This powerful and insightful play is produced by London-based company The Skullcap Collective.
