The play was performed recently onstage by the Asolo Theatre. This radio version by L.A. Theatre Works features Teagle F. Bougere, Matt Letscher and Daniel Davis. The broadcast includes an interview with Dr. Natalie Bearden, a Clinical Neuropsychologist and UCLA professor.

Joe Penhall is an award-winning British playwright and screenwriter. "Blue/Orange" premiered at London's National Theatre in 2000, with Bill Nighy and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the cast. Penhall's screenplays include adaptations of Ian McEwen's Enduring Love and Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
