In the world premiere of Blood, a Jewish-American reporter in Japan uncovers a conspiracy to cover up the government-sanctioned sale of HIV-contaminated blood products. Based on the real-life "Japanese Tainted Blood Scandal," this riveting new production pieces together details of the early '80s scandal that resulted in nearly 2,000 AIDS-related deaths. The scandal triggered public outrage against the drug industry and Japanese government officials and sparked a trial that lasted over a decade. This political thriller -- debuting at Ruby Theatre at the Complex in L.A. -- was written and directed by Obie winner and Emmy nominee Robert Allan Ackerman and features an original music score.
Running time is two hours, with one intermission.
