We were commissioned by CRUK to bring to life the astonishing story of Henrietta Lacks – the source of one of the most important cell lines in medical history.
What we did
Following extensive research into the source material we devised and scripted a short dramatization charting this incredible tale before casting and rehearsing the characters of Henrietta and biologist George Otto Gey.
The show was performed in a wide variety of venues including the University of Manchester, the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds, and the Richard Doll Lecture Theatre in Oxford.
- Far-reaching awareness was brought to Henrietta Lacks’ important story
- The performance has gained widespread acclaim from all who witnessed it
- The show was so successful it has currently been revived with updated versions on 5 separate occasions
