Mon, 12 June, 2023 — Sat, 17 June, 2023
Directed by Becky Hope-Palmer | Cast - Rehanna Macdonald, Lynsey-Anne Moffat, Anna Russell-Martin
A dark comedy delving into power play dynamics, politics, class and the desperation for eternal youth.
Priya and Caris have an arrangement, a somewhat risqué arrangement for a Tory MP and an NHS nurse to have.
When picture-perfect, bottom-of-the-barrel Bonnie interrupts this unusual pair, Priya sinks her fangs into a tasty, new opportunity.
What will it take for the power dynamics to shift?
Who will have blood on their hands?
“Dark and daring, Bloodbank leaves you craving some real justice”
