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.
