Description

Blue by Thomas Weatherall is a touching and beautiful exploration of a young person’s journey through grief, loss, mental well-being and young adulthood.

SYNOPSIS

When Mark moved out of home for the first time, his mum started writing him letters – just checking in, staying in touch, keeping a gentle hold on her son. Until one letter brings news no-one wants to hear. Blue is a bold and deeply personal new work from a young and revelatory new voice in Australian writing. Journey deep into the beauty and sadness of a young life at its new beginning.

PRODUCTION HISTORY

Blue was first performed at Belvoir St Theatre, 14 – 29 January 2023. Presented by Belvoir St Theatre in association with Sydney Festival Indigenous Theatre at Belvoir supported by The Balnaves Foundation.
