Bad blood

Stockwell, Richard (2003) Bad blood. [Performance] (Unpublished)

Full text not available from this repository.


Commercial theatre has begun to develop almost independently of subsidised theatre companies. Some might say the commercial strand has begun to stagnate and is failing to learn anything from developing forms. Bad Blood is a playful thriller which tries to redraw the popular genre thriller of the 1970s for a modern audience. The intention of the piece is to explore the boundary between the light-hearted tone of earlier work by writers such as Francis Durbridge or NJ Crisp and the rough violence of more politically grounded modern plays such as Gagarin W. The national touring production (2003) starred Gillian Taylforth and Gary Mavers, and was directed by Roger Redfarn. It has also been produced in Hamburg and Kenya. One of the monologues from the piece has been separately published in Best Men’s Stage Monologues (Smith and Kraus 2005).
