1998-1998 | Donmar Warehouse Directed by Sam Mendes
he Blue Room allows the audience to observe from close proximity the nuances of the sexual politics encountered by ten individuals through their lustful wants.
There is no main plot to The Blue Room as the play is a series of scenes which glimpses in at a non-specified time when one character meets up with the next be they politician, playwright, taxi driver, housewife, actress or au-pair, meetings which inevitably lead in nearly all instances to what at times are crude meaningless sexual dalliances.
No one character appears more than twice within the daisy chain of meetings which all occur within the setting of modern day London. Each meeting, whether planned or totally random, depicts a sojourn into the truth of what at times are desperate and disparate sexual liaisons and the ramifications they can have upon not only our lives but of those around us.
The central link between all ten scenes is that one of the characters appeared in the previous scene, there is no other specific link between characters although there is a cross over between a husband and wife and their own separate immorality.Read more

Thirteen people have tried to kill the president of the United States. Four have succeeded. These murderers and would-be murderers are generally dismissed as maniacs and misfits who have little in common with each other, and nothing in common with the rest of us.
Assassins suggests otherwise...
