The Blue Room

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

Freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde, playwright David 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 on The Blue Room
