In a world where health, wealth and happiness depend on one single genetic test — dictating everything from credit rating to dating prospects — phlebotomy reigns supreme. But how far will people go to beat the system? Ella Road’s provocative first play forces us to question the value we place on one another, whether knowledge really is power, and if love truly can conquer all. Appropriate for ages 14 and up.
The Phlebotomist was a finalist for the 2018-2019 Susan Smith Blackburn prize, and nominated for the 2019 Lawrence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.
