Brightest Red to Blue

Forerunner Playwrights’ Theatre is a playwright driven theatre company, dedicated to premiering new plays. BRIGHTEST RED TO BLUE will be our eighth world premiere.

BRIGHTEST RED TO BLUE will take Forerunner to a place we have never been before – a graveyard in London, England in 1870. When Lizzie Siddal, famed Pre-Raphaelite supermodel, dies in 1862, a broken hearted Dante Gabriel Rossetti buries his poems along with her in an ex…pression of undying love. Six years later he changes his mind and goes back for them. In BRIGHTEST RED TO BLUE, Victorian England comes alive in a hilarious and heartfelt depiction of one of the most infamous nights in art history.
