The Blue Mug- Review

Atul Kumar’s The Company Theatre has revived The Blue Mug, a 75 minute long production that draws inspiration from Oliver Sacks’ The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, that was based on the case histories of patients with neurological problems. The original play evolved through a series of vignettes, where patients recounted the bizarre memories that engulfed them as a result of their aberrations.
The characters in The Blue Mug also rely on their memories to conceptualise fantastical situations, some real and some not so real. Through these recollected memories, the audience is led into a world of their interpretations and perceptions of what was and what might have been.
