MARTINA Laird - paramedic Comfort Jones in BBC TV's popular Casualty - and Nathaniel Martello-White share the stage at Theatre Royal Stratford East (TRSE) in Paul Sirett's intense new two hander, Bad Blood Blues.
Staged in the studio space, it takes the audience on a frank and ethically challenging journey into the world of HIV/Aids drug trials in Africa.
Bad Blood Blues is the seventh production written by Sirett to play at TRSE.
His most recent was Come Dancing (co-written with Ray Davies), which won the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers' Choice Award for Best Off-West End production.
