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.

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.
