photograph Margaret Wilkinson’s new play 'Blue Boy'

Blue Boy opens at the Northern Stage on October 24th

“I’m not here to spook you, mister - honest. All I wanted was a place to sleep where it’s warm and safe”.

In a social services office late at night, Reagan discovers that the past can indeed come back to haunt you, even if you’ve shredded the evidence. When an apparently lost and frightened boy arrives in the small hours, it’s not clear if his business is refuge or revenge.

Playwright Margaret Wilkinson returns to North East theatres with modern gothic thriller Blue Boy, directed by Tess Denman-Cleaver and produced by New Writing North in co-production with Northern Stage, Darlington Civic Theatre, Durham Book Festival and The Customs House, South Shields.
