The Blue Room

By David Hare
Directed by David Shirley

A sensation in London and on Broadway, The Blue Room depicts a daisy chain of ten sexual encounters between five women and five men who portray a sense of the hypocrisy, the folly and the loneliness that many experience in today’s world.

Freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde, Hare has moved the action from turn-of-the-century Vienna to a modern British city and infused the sketches with witty and provocative modern nuances.

‘Generates enough erotic energy to raise the dead of two continents... a funny, intelligent and razor sharp satire that strips bare not just the follies of the flesh but also the delusions of desire itself.’ (The New York Daily News)
