Synopsis


Amy is a young Junior Doctor working in Swansea A&E, hoping to transfer to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.


When she receives a gift from her mum, Amy's transported straight back to a childhood trauma and forced to confront feelings she didn't know she's been hiding.


Helping others is at the heart of her career but perhaps this is to make up for the one person she couldn't save?


When Amy receives a case of a boy with cancer it makes her question whether she can ever really let go of her past.


Will she find the answers she's looking for in London allowing her to move on with her life?


BLOOD ORANGE is set at Christmas in A&E and a close up look at a life of love, loss and guilt as Amy questions the ultimate truth of why she really wants to be a doctor.


This one woman play with humour and pathos allows you to immerse yourself in Amy's journey.


The minimalist staging with evocative sound and lighting adds depth to this heartfelt relatable story that has hope at its heart.
