Theatre -> Blood By Emteaz Hussain: 28th March - 27th June 2015

Blood By Emteaz Hussain: 28th March - 27th June 2015
Blood By Emteaz Hussain

Presented by Tamasha and The Belgrade Theatre Coventry
28th March - 27th June 2015
Directed by Esther Richardson
Running Time: 80mins, Age Recommendation: 14+

Set among a Midlands Pakistani community, Blood is sparky, funny and heart-wrenchingly honest 21st century love story. A timely and contemporary tale, this play cuts through political agendas and goes straight to the heart. It lets us into a world governed by links to family and clan, as much as fiercely individual wants and desires. “After the 2011 riots, I felt frustrated over the myopic portrayal of working class young people. It was important to me to write a play which captured the complexity of their lives and the brave, sassy way they negotiate their identity in a wider context.” Emteaz Hussain



Caneze meets Sully in the college canteen. The heat rises over triple chilli sauce in Nando’s. She makes her move in the sweet smoke of a shisha bar. A touchpaper is lit… but neither of them bargained on the lengths to which her brother would go to keep them apart. Blood is a searing and heartfelt new play by the writer of Tamasha’s Sweet Cider.

About the writer

Emteaz Hussain is a Nottingham-based performance poet, playwright and workshop leader who has worked with Benjamin Zephaniah and Lemn Sissay. Her acclaimed first play, Sweet Cider, was produced by Tamasha in 2008
