Synopsis


"Nt a brdway 'smash' xctly" - Bob Geldof


Imagine, for a second, that Dante is a heroin addict and Beatrice isn't breathing.


He finds Her slumped on the kitchen floor amidst a crumbling and high-speed dystopia.


One more hit then he'll definitely tell someone.


But for now She's going to keep Herself alive, by taking Him through His nine circles of personal Hell.


On a comedown.


A natural disaster at a church service; an all night wake at a casino; a grieving little Brother pointing him back to God; a family wishing He was the one in the coffin, Blue Departed is a turbulent new play from emerging playwright Serafina Cusack (Royal Court, King's Head, Theatre 503).
