Blood Play comes to Boston

Following its January run at the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival, Blood Play will pick up and move to Boston, to perform as a part of ArtsEmerson’s The Next Thing Festival!

The Debate Society’s play, co-written by and starring Fellow Hannah Bos, sold out its run at the Bushwick Starr in October of 2012, including a week-long extension. It was a Critic’s Pick in New York Magazine, and The New York Times, Time-Out NY, and The Village Voice (among others) all gave it glowing reviews. So if you missed it in New York City, head over to Boston to see what you’ve missed!

Blood Play, a darkly comic thriller of post-war verve and pre-adolescent disquiet, translates the anti-Semitic medieval perception that Jewish men menstruated into a provocative, 20th century thriller.

In the tranquil Chicago suburbs in the early 1950’s, the kids are away camping with their Jr. Cherokee’s Troop, and a string of coincidences yields a spontaneous grown-up party. In the basement of a brand-new ranch house, exotic cocktails like “Rapupu Sours” are sampled, games like “Bee Pee Bo” are played and new friends like Jeep, the door-to-door photographer, are made.

But things are happening that no one is talking about, and something is stirring underground…

Blood Play will perform February 21 – 23, 2013, at varying times. Tickets go on sale January 2, so click here for more details!
