Blue loves the sea. Blue is sick. The doctors aren’t listening. And the sea is making the illness worse. As the pain grows, Blue and their wife, Pip, set out to find answers and get Blue to the sea before it all becomes unbearable. From the award-winning writer of the five-star musical Rust comes a modern-day folktale exploring endometriosis, the patriarchal healthcare system and the ebbing of the tides. Blue and Pip questions what it means when we both grieve and celebrate our bodies at the same time, and salutes the comfort we seek in our surroundings.
