Background


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).


Rising star 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.


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


Synopsis


"I'm not that into this whole ratings thing to be honest … shouldn't we just go for who we fancy?".


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 is on the brink of landing her dream job and has big plans to start a family - but her blood rating threatens it all.


In a world where future happiness depends on a single, inescapable blood test - which dictates everything from credit rating to dating prospects - how far will people go to beat the system and let nature take its course?
