Theatre Deli is hosting a play about the life of activist Rachel Corrie who died while protesting the demolition of Palestinian homes in the Gaza Strip. The 23-year old travelled to Gaza to join other peace activists in March 2003 and was crushed to death two months later by an Israeli bulldozer. Sheffield Live! reporter baillor Jalloh spoke to director Hassun Zafar and actress Ella Dunlop.
An explosive play called Bad Blood Blues, exposing the ethics of HIV drug trials in Africa, is to be performed in Sheffield at the beginning of March at Theatre Delicatessen on Eyre Street. The play by Paul Sirett explores the moral maze of drug trials on the African population by western pharmaceutical companies. It will be only the second time it has been staged in the UK and will mark the directing debut of Sheffield-based actor John Rwoth-Omack. Azz Mohammed reports for Sheffield Live!
