Emteaz Hussain's brand new play, Blood, opens at Belgrade Theatre, Coventry running from 27 March to 11 April. Directed by Esther Richardson, Blood is a fresh, funny and compelling new love story about two teenagers from a Midlands Pakistani community.
Like a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, Caneze and Sully’s story is about family ties and the risks people are willing to take for love – and the lengths to which others will go to keep them apart. A timely and contemporary story, this play 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.
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. This new play is a co-production between Tamasha and Belgrade Theatre.
