Casting has been announced for Joe Penhall’s Blue/Orange which opens at the Yong Vic in May.
David Haig (Guys and Dolls, Four Weddings and a Funeral) will join Daniel Kaluuya (Black Mirror, Sucker Punch) and Luke Norris (Poldark, A View from the Bridge) in the cast which will be directed Matthew Xia.
Blue/Orange is a razor-sharp study of the intersection between mental health provision and race; it premiered at the National Theatre in 2000, transferred to the West End and won the Olivier Award for Best New Play. Xi’s new production aims to draw out the contemporary relevance of the play’s themes.
Kaluuya will play the patient, Christopher, with Haig as Robert and Norris as Bruce, the two doctors debating Christopher’s future.
Blue/Orange runs from 12 May 2016 until 2 July 2016 at The Young Vic Theatre.
