Michaelmas Week 8
‘Why do you think I asked you to peel the orange?’
‘To see what colour it was inside.’
‘And what colour was it? In your own words. Without any help from me.’
‘In my own words. Blue.’
In a London psychiatric hospital, a patient is coming to the end of his 28 day section time. But when he claims to be the son of an African dictator, and that the orange in front of him is bright blue, his psychiatrists begin to question his unnerving story.
Blue/Orange is an incendiary tale of race, madness and a Darwinian power struggle at the heart of a dying National Health Service.
