The Blue Room - A Rehearsed Reading
by David Hare
Friday 10th May
The Blue Room by David Hare is a modern adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde or Reigen. Schnitzler never intended that his ‘loose series of sexual scenes’ should be publicly performed, intending for them to ‘read among friends.
Hare’s adaptation was first performed by Nicole Kidman and Iain Glen at the Donmar Warehouse in 1998 and Kidman’s nudity caused a media storm. Expect to be moved by this version of the circular scenes of love and betrayal, lust and mistrust. Not suitable for children.
Please note this is a rehearsed reading where the performers will have scripts in hand.
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
