THEATRE: 'Blue' at La Boite Theatre

16 May 2024

Season: May 16th - June 1st, 2024

DATES: 16 MAY – 1 JUN 2024

ABOUT: A show of tranquility and grace. Getting older is inevitable, but growing up takes courage. 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. A tender and exquisite monologue written and performed by Logie Award-winner, Thomas Weatherall (Heartbreak High), Blue marks the writing debut of this accomplished actor and dancer.
