Whose Blood

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

World premiere of the play Whose Blood by award-winning playwright Alex Burger.

Enter an authentic 19th century operating theatre, sit in the halls where thousands went under the knife and few survived. The year is 1832. Witness the story of one patient brought back to life.

One morning a couple from what is today Ghana arrives at St Thomas' Hospital looking for help.

A doctor proposes an experimental solution.

Soon, the couple find themselves immersed in a world of gin shops, body snatching, and ghosts.

How far would you go to save the one you love?

Strictly limited to 12 performances.

Sponsored by the Wellcome Trust, Arts Council England, Guy's and St. Thomas' Charity, The Broadway Barking, and Talawa Theatre company.
