NEWLY ANNOUNCED OLIVIER AWARD NOMINEE, 2019
FINALIST FOR THE SUSAN SMITH BLACKBURN PRIZE, 2019

Bea meets Aaron. He’s intelligent, handsome, makes her laugh and, most importantly, has a high rating on his genetic profile. What’s not to like? Char has two degrees and is on the brink of landing her dream job but her rating threatens it all... In a ratist world where health, wealth and happiness depend on a single blood test - dictating everything from bank loans to dating prospects – phlebotomy reigns supreme. So how far will people go to beat the system?

Ella Road’s debut play is a powerfully provocative vision of a dystopian future, questioning the value we place on one another, whether knowledge really is power, and if love truly can conquer all.

Sam Yates makes his Hampstead Theatre Main Stage directorial debut. His theatre credits include Glengarry Glen Ross starring Christian Slater (West End), Murder Ballad (West End), and The El. Train, starring Ruth Wilson (Hoxton Hall). 

Jade Anouka plays Bea. Jade’s theatre work includes Queen Margaret (Royal Exchange), Cover My Tracks (The Old Vic) and Shakespeare Trilogy (Donmar). She is currently starring in ITV’s new drama, Cleaning Up, with Sheridan Smith. Rory Fleck Byrne plays Aaron. His theatre work includes Anna Karenina (Abbey, Dublin); Vortex (Gate, Dublin); King Charles III (Wyndham's) and Kiza Deen plays Char. 

Following a sold out run Downstairs in 2018, The Phlebotomist transfers to the Main Stage to meet demand.
