    IRON OXIDE

    1951. Henrietta Lacks walks into the coloured section of a hospital in Baltimore with a pain in her abdomen. A cell sample taken without her permission is used as the raw material for some of the most important scientific discoveries of the past 100 years.

    This solo show by Adura Onashile takes as its inspiration the true life story of Henrietta Lacks and the extraordinary life of the HeLa cell line. Winner of the Flying Artichoke Award, the Total Theatre Award and nominee for the Amnesty
    International Freedom of Expression Award 2013.
