THE PHLEBOTOMIST: ★★★★ FROM THE GUARDIAN

The Phlebotomist review – a gasp-worthy dystopian thriller

LYN GARDNER, THE GUARDIAN

 

'Bea (Jade Anouka), a phlebotomist, falls head over heels in love with Aaron (Rory Fleck Byrne) and the pair bond over poetry and pineapple juice. They live in a world, not far in the future, where scientific advances mean that a simple blood test can predict whether and when you will develop diseases.'

'Ella Road’s debut play is a racy dystopian thriller that is part Black Mirror and part Brave New World. It comes very neatly packaged in a production by Sam Yates that elicits terrific performances, particularly from Anouka as a woman who wants a sure return on her emotional investments, but discovers real love is unconditional.

'This is a gripping piece with some gasp-worthy moments using both head and heart to ask what it is we really value and why.'
