Debs Newbold’s Offies-nominated, one-woman Lost in Blue is “a gripping story… as hilarious as it is poignant”, says Broadway Baby. We’ve rounded up highlights from the show’s raft of other five- and four-star reviews. Just a handful of chances left to see the show at London’s Lion & Unicorn Theatre, where it must end this Saturday 26 February 2022. Time to get booking!
Through the prism of Vincent van Gogh’s famous late work, Bedroom in Arles, Debs explores the phenomenon of living life in a coma, issues around end of life, and the healing power of art.
Annie is amazing at art. When she was three years old, her life was skewed off-course. On her 18th birthday, it threatens to happen again.
Where do people go when they are in a coma? What happens when a family disagrees about how long to let a loved one hold on? What would van Gogh say about loss if you hung out with him in his room at Arles? And what do pigeons have to do with it?
Lost in Blue is written and performed by Debs Newbold. The production, which comes to London via Edinburgh and touring, is directed by John Wright, with sound design is by Kieran Lucas.
