SIM Ep 671 IMD21 #4: Giles Terera and Michael Balogun on Blue/Orange
It's a cliche in theatre to say a play is more relevant than ever, but in the case of Joe Penhall's Blue/Orange, it's 100% true. A new version of it, starring Michael Balogun and Giles Terera is currently on at Northampton's Royal & Derngate Theatres and Hannah spoke to them about the show's themes of race, mental illness and truth, as well as the emotional rollercoaster of last year's National Theatre production of The Death of England: Delroy. They also chat about Hamilton
- obviously - and the advice they'd give working-class youngsters about breaking into acting. Listener, she loved them.
