This tale of seduction and intimacy based on Schnitzler's La Ronde first premiered in Germany in 1921, after which it was promptly closed down by the police and the actors arrested and put on trial.

The Blue Room features characters from a wide cross-section of society. Through an amazing series of 10 vignettes, The Blue Room is a circular story of seduction involving the cab driver, the au pair, the married woman, the politician, the model, the playwright, the actress, the aristocrat.... all played by just the two actors.

Coronation Street star Tracy Shaw and heartthrob Jason Connery (Robin Hood), star in what is guaranteed to be an evening of theatre at its most intimate. Connery has numerous films to his credit including Casablanca Express, Macbeth, Robin of Sherwood and Midnight in St Petersburg.

Shaw, a huge fan of the play says: "Everybody knows the play for its nudity, but it is much more than that - it's an incredible piece of theatre."

Connery adds: "I am really excited about coming back to perform in the UK and Ireland, and particularly to take this great David Hare piece on tour so that it can be seen outside London."

The Blue Room is playing at the Arts Theatre from 3rd to 8th February, 2003.
