An exhilarating, challenging new play by Amnesty Award-winning playwright Clare Bayley.
Isolated airports, midnight landings, secret assignations… how much do we know about what our governments are involved in? And do we want to know – or is it easier to turn a blind eye?
Clare Bayley’s play Blue Sky is a gripping political thriller about justice, journalism and what might be happening in the English countryside in the dead of night.
Blue Sky was first staged at Hampstead Theatre Downstairs, London, in October 2012, in a production by Pentabus Theatre.
‘Bayley shifts fluently between the morality of high politics and the personal variety… painfully convincing.’
‘Skilfully shatters any image of sleepy, bucolic England… the roar of planes will never sound so innocent again.’
