When Stewart, a hedonistic drifter, and Michael, a timid hospital auxiliary, embark on a love affair, the odds are set against them. For as much as Stewart is assertive and streetwise, Michael is introverted and awkward. In this two-hander Peter Gill explores the simultaneous attraction and incompatibility of two social worlds.

Peter Gill’s In the Blue was first performed in the Cottesloe auditorium of the National Theatre, London, in March 1985.
