Can you fall in love with someone if you don’t know their gender?
Peter finds out when he falls for the sexually ambiguous ‘Blue’.
Their relationship poses a challenge to Peter’s identity, forcing him to face some difficult questions: To what extent are we all encouraged to conform to narrow culturally defined stereotypes, to label and to pigeon-hole ourselves?
Are these labels a form of straight jacket and by adapting to them do we compromise our true nature?
Casting caution to the wind, Peter’s passion for ‘Blue’ provokes prejudice and hostility from friends and family in a tale of sexual liberation and shattered taboos.
Written and Directed by Ian Dixon Potter
Performed by Ilaria Ciardelli, Thomasin Lockwood, Gianbruno Spena and Duncan Mason
