Theatre Deli presents Bad Blood Blues

Copyright Bad Blood Blues

For three nights only, dark yet intriguing play Bad Blood Blues will be showcased at the Theatre Deli in Sheffield.

Bad Blood Blues explores the controversial HIV/AIDS drug trials which used African people as guinea pigs to pioneer new medicine. Accompanied by a live blues musician, the powerful drama watches two characters as they negotiate a moral and sexual maze.

Why is HIV/AIDS treatment too expensive for countries where the virus is most rife? Are Africans being exploited as guinea pigs to test new drugs for multi-national pharmaceutical companies?  Is it okay to sacrifice lives to protect the integrity of medical studies?

Directed by Ugandan born Sheffield bred theatre maker, John Rwoth-Omack, Paul Sirett’s explosive 2009 play comes to Sheffield to expose the unanswered questions of the pharmaceutical industry’s murky past.

The performance will be showing at the Theatre Deli from 1 to 3 March. Click here to book your tickets.
