After a life of industrious industrial work, Andre and Lucie have retired to the country. Another life starts and Andre sets out to 'learn' about the world, the universe and everything in it. As he unravels the secrets of the cosmos, Andre unravels his fragile sanity, and Lucie is left to pick up the pieces. A beautifully simple and tender piece, which echoes Jean-Paul Wenzel's "Far away from Hagondange" written 25 years earlier. A generation has passed and the terms 'working life' and 'retirement' have taken on completely different meanings. Wenzel reflects on the work that launched his career in a very personal and intimate tone. Rising Blue is part of the National Theatre's Channels project, a series of contemporary French plays read in translation at the Lyttleton.
