BLUE is an abstract fairy tale for adults about a woman who lives on the Moon. Using poetry, clowning, cardboard and a lobster called Spock, BLUE is a one woman show that explores experiences with mental health and the importance of reaching out when you're not OK.
Blue is a journey that takes us to the Moon, with Spock the lobster and Blue, to explore what it's like on the Moon and whether she likes it up there. Along the journey questions are raised about Blue's mental health.
