By Maggie Nelson, adapted by Leigh Hendrix & Ellenor Riley-Condit

“Suppose I were to begin by saying that I had fallen in love with a color…” Adapted from the intensely personal book of prose poetry by critically acclaimed writer Maggie Nelson, Bluets takes an intimate, philosophical look at grief, loss, desire, healing, and, of course- the color blue.
