Bad Blood is a gothic retelling of Tremblay’s harrowing experience with the Saskatchewan healthcare system. This uniquely Saskatchewan story was our first large-scale production, that garnered national attention with an unprecedented review in The Globe and Mail. The Show was SOLD OUT with rave audience reviews. Again proving that Regina Audiences are passionate to see local stories boldly presented on stage.
“If Bad Blood is an example of the work to come for Curtain Razors, we’re likely to see more of them outside of the province in coming years.”
Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail.
This production is currently being pitched to major theatres and is poised to tour across Canada.
“Bad Blood reveals the imperative to humanize the patient experience. In this remarkable play, we learn what can happen when a person is subject to the “medical gaze” and depersonalization. Joey Tremblay’s work is an amazing account; an emotional roller coaster of joy, sorrow, tragedy, and the power found in human connection.”
David Gregory,Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Nursing
“There is no doubt in my mind that this work had a profound effect on those who attended, particularly our young health care workers. This is an impactful work, and it manages to successfully situate itself between art and life, bringing us a poetic, challenging and moving lived experience that we can all learn from.”
Rae Staseson – Dean, Faculty of Media, Art, and Performance, University of Regina
Bad Blood was originally written with the assistance of a Sask. Arts Board Writing Grant and received a workshop with Curtain Razors in May 2014.
