* Jamie Lewis Hadley

There's a new Sweeney Todd in town - only this one's not out to kill you. Situated within the window of a barbershop, this performance explores the history of bloodletting as a medical practice, tracing its roots in ancient medicine, the rise of the barber/surgeon and the current understanding of blood within modern medicine.
