THE PHLEBOTOMIST Comes to Hampstead Theatre

Ella Road's debut play, The Phlebotomist transfers to Hampstead Theatre's Main Stage, following a sold out run Downstairs in 2018, with Jade Anouka and Rory Fleck Byrne reprising their roles as Bea and Aaron. They will be joined by Kiza Deen playing Char, Claudia Cadette playing Phlebotomist/Citizen/Ensemble, Mark Lambert playing David and Edward Wolstenholme as Phlebotomist/Gambler/Ensemble.

Bea meets Aaron. He's intelligent, handsome, makes her laugh and, most importantly, has a high rating on his genetic profile. What's not to like? Char has two degrees and is on the brink of landing her dream job but her rating threatens it all... In a ratist world where health, wealth and happiness depend on a single blood test - dictating everything from bank loans to dating prospects - phlebotomy reigns supreme. So how far will people go to beat the system? Ella Road's debut play is a powerfully provocative vision of a dystopian future, questioning the value we place on one another, whether knowledge really is power, and if love truly can conquer all.

The Phlebotomist has been announced as a finalist for The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize 2019.
