Luke Norris On Stage

Fresh from playing dashing doctor, Dwight Enys, Poldark star Luke Norris is back on stage soon, this time as an actor (he is also a writer, his play So Here We Are played in Manchester's Royal Exchange theatre last autumn). He will be starring in The Young Vic's production of Olivier Award winning play, Blue/Orange by Joe Penhall.

The play is about a man called Christopher, who has been confined to a psychiatric ward for a month as he thinks oranges are blue. It sounds like Luke will play the role of his doctor, who convinced he needs help, wants to section him. The senior consultant thinks it’s all a question of culture: at home in Shepherd’s Bush Christopher will be amongst 'people who think just like him'.

The Young Vic's artistic director David Lan said, "Daniel Kaluuya was a revelation in our A Season in the Congo as was Luke Norris in A View from the Bridge. I'm delighted to welcome them both back to play patient and doctor in Matthew Xia's production of Joe Penhall's edge-of-seat state of the nation masterpiece."
