Bea takes people's blood. She tests it. Then she determines the rest of their lives. When she meets Aaron, and falls in love, this world of 'ratings' starts to seem a little less right. Char, her best friend, has two degrees, a dream job lined up, but her genes start to endanger it all.

In a world growing rapidly genetically elitist, your genes determine who you can love, where you can work, your standing in society. How far will they go to come out on top.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 15+

This amateur production of The Phlebotomist is presented by an arrangement with United Agents
