The Wild Blue tells the story of a community of people all living in the wake of September 11th 2001, all striving to overcome personal obstacles and a world consumed by fear; all dreaming the same dream together.
Drawing upon theatrical influences such as ‘A Chorus Line’, ‘Three Penny Opera’, ‘Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens’, ‘Under Milkwood’ and ‘Working’, ‘The Wild Blue’ is set within an imagined aeroplane, soaring over the night sky, with no pilot and no known destination. In their dreaming each character is charged with the overwhelming urge to fall from the plane, and in that moment of truth, risk everything to secure their deepest most personal desire, shifting the momentum of their lives forever.
...From The Skydiver to The Man Who Loved Cows, all of the characters in Wild Blue are concerned with a core metaphor - the fear to jump into the void. This challenging musical theatre piece has strong and poetic lyrics, music of a variety of styles and bracing themes approached from unexpected angles...
