Deep Blue

Deep Blue, from Liverpool-based Paperwork Theatre—online May 8–15—finds Riley caught between two worlds.

She’s at the in-between age. The parks are full of families, the pubs are full of mates, but it’s only in Tesco that Riley can be whoever she wants to be.

Deep Blue is described as a heartfelt, sometimes humorous and raw exploration of what it means to belong, punctuated by an original indie-rock soundtrack from the Mono LPs.

An ensemble cast features Danielle McLauren, Tom Wilson, Edalia Day and Holly Phelps.

Recommended for ages 12+. Contains mild swearing and flashing lights.
