Show Information

Christopher has been detained under the Mental Health Act as a section 2. He is due to be released. His 28 days are up.

Set in the heart of a failing NHS, two experts come head to head to decide on the fate of a young man who could well be the illegitimate son of an African dictator.

But is the Orange actually blue?

A darkly funny contemporary drama with startling and surprising consequences.
