Christopher thinks oranges look blue. And he believes he is the son of former Ugandan president Idi Amin. Does he have schizophrenia, or is he just misunderstood? Should he be kept as a psychiatric inpatient, or is he better off going home? Who gets to decide? And what happens if the NHS has no beds?

Straw Bear, in association with The Institute of Neuroscience, Newcastle University, presents Joe Penhall’s extraordinary play about race, mental illness, medicine and power.
