Blue
  • London Fringe

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.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
