For £15, book a top ticket to see "Blue/Orange", which won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2001 and stars Robert Bathurst (pictured) of hit ITV series "Downton Abbey". This new touring version is directed by West End veteran Christopher Luscombe, and is "as fresh as it was when it first appeared 12 years ago", according to the Daily Express.

Book a Price Band A seat in the Stalls or Circle for any performance on 11-13 October at the Grand Opera House York, and save 40% on the usual price of £25. The offer already includes a £2.50-per-ticket fee, so the only extra you'll pay is a one-off per-transaction charge of £4.

Written by Joe Penhall, whose credits include film adaptations of Ian McEwan's Enduring Love and Cormac McCarthy's The Road, "Blue/Orange" tells the story of Christopher, a psychiatric hospital patient who thinks oranges are blue, and that a notorious dictator is his father. When doctors disagree about his long-term care, a psychologically thrilling power struggle erupts.

"Blue/Orange" was first performed in 2000 -- the year it won the London Evening Standard award for Best Play -- and was described by The Guardian as "exuberant... a stinging satire".
