Under the Blue Sky is David Eldridge’s award-winning, funny and touching play – three subtly connected love stories that reveal in turn the roller-coaster ride of lust in its prime, the sacrifices of a life in public service and its unrequited passions. In the long shadow of the twentieth century, Eldridge’s play is a delicate yet truthful depiction of all the degrees of love – from fondness and affection through the headier extremes of a drunken romp. It gives us an all too recognisable portrayal of the way in which uncertainties, misunderstanding and the unsaid lead to unexpected results for three couples who seem destined never to say the right thing.
