Under the Blue Sky
By David Eldridge
Directed by Lynn Facey
Bombshells, revelations and mismatched expectations. In this touching, comic triptych of subtly linked stories six teachers speak boldly about unrequited love, obsession and the chance of happiness.
Having slept together once, colleagues Nick and Helen now have a virtually platonic relationship. However, tensions rise when Nick announces his intention to move to another School.
Drunken Michelle is determined to have sex with obsessive, desperate Graham until he disturbingly reverses their roles.
Meanwhile, older Anne and younger Robert look to the sky and hope to be happy.
Opening in 1996 against the backdrop of the IRA bombing of Canary Wharf and spanning two and a half years, the couples embark on an exploration of sexual agony and morality.
Who's lonely, who's hungry and who's just greedy?
Under the Blue Sky premièred at the Royal Court in September 2000 and was revived in 2008 at the Duke of York's Theatre.
