HCM CITY (VNS) — The Dragonfly Theatre Company in cooperation with the Saigon Sound System will present English dramatist Joe Penhall's comedy Blue/Orange at the Q4 on May 16, 17 and 18.
Directed by Ryan Burkwood, the play takes place in a London psychiatric hospital, where an enigmatic patient claims to be the son of an African dictator while his doctors argue about the best course of treatment.
The show is an evocative tale of race, mental illness and the impact of the controversial issue of care in the community.
It won the prestigious Laurence Olivier award in 2001. It has been staged at London's National Theatre and also adapted into a film by the BBC.
Q4 is at 7 Nguyen Tat Thanh Street in District 4. Reservations are recommended.— VNS
