“I grab my beeper and I’m ready for the onslaught.”

 Amy is a young Junior Doctor in Swansea A&E hoping to transfer to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. Helping others is at the heart of her career but perhaps this is to make up for the one person she couldn’t save? Her skills and strength are put to the test when teenager Luke, suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia is admitted under Amy’s care causing her flashbacks revisiting her childhood and the question if she can ever let go of her past. Guided by the people she meets along the way, will Amy find the answer allowing her to put the shadows of her past to bed or will this be the start of a new nightmare…

 “I want to do that, remember.”

BLOOD ORANGE is a close up look at a life of love, loss and guilt as Amy questions the ultimate truth of why she really wants to be a doctor. This one woman show with humour and pathos allows you to immerse yourself in Amy’s story with evocative sound and music and encourages an intimate dynamic and minimalistic staging stripping it back to reality.

 ‘Christmas in A&E is like hell with caffeine and catheters.’
