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.
