Tamasha presents Blood - A searing new urban love story at Soho Theatre

A searing urban love story at Soho Theatre 28 April - 17 May


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.

Set among a Midlands Pakistani community, Blood is sparky, funny and heart-wrenchingly honest. A timely and contemporary story, 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.

'Sparky performances of youthful intensity, swagger and sweetness... there's a piquancy here, a tenderness and a rough-edged ardour that keep us hooked.' Times

'Brutal and comic... impossible not to warm to the performances of
Krupa Pattani and Adam Samuel-Bal'.'


28 April –17 May Soho Theatre, London
