Factor 9

by Hamish MacDonald

Directed by Ben Harrison
Video design by Tim Reid
Cast includes Matthew Zajac

Dogstar presents a visceral horror story, a multi-media performance dominated by that vital fluid, blood.

Set against the backdrop of the tainted blood products scandal which has affected thousands of haemophiliacs worldwide, Factor 9 is a story of human survival and a cry for justice in the face of a medical industrial nightmare.


'Both Stewart Porter as Rab and Matthew Zajac as Bruce lay the facts out well, tell the history clearly and, most importantly, make us feel the horror that creeps into these men's lives. There is an outstanding sound design by Pippa Murphy which often seems to envelope the audience. Ben Harrison's direction is never static and his cast use their modest acting space with wit and variation.' Victor Hallett, Theatre in Wales 23/3/14
