BLUE is about the quest for spiritual meaning in our modern secular and cynical age.
Max and Frances Davidson, a chaotic couple in their late thirties, have reached crisis point in Bethnal Green. Frances, a creative weaver, is convinced (wrongly) that she has MS and is also deeply troubled by a large blue square which seems to keep intruding into her work of its own volition, whilst her husband, Max Davidson, a manic, unbalanced interior designer, takes a lot of prescription drugs washed down copiously with vintage Armagnac, and is obsessed with New Age writings such as Theosophy, Alice A Bailey, Gurdjieff, et cetera. From this careful reading he has gradually come to realise that he is a direct descendant of the biblical King David of Israel and Judea and that he is down here with a special mission to build the Third Temple of Jerusalem, but in Glastonbury.
Into this troubled household comes Sareen, a young Armenian refugee with shamanistic powers and ambitions to become an architect.
