Blood Of The Lamb

by Bruce Mason

30 June - 10 July 1993




The Court Theatre, Christchurch (New Zealand), commissioned a play for three women actors. 'No men at all?' pleaded Bruce Mason. 'No, not one' came the reply from the theatre's Artistic Director. Mason played with several ideas, when quite by chance, he heard of a lesbian couple with a child - the mother of the child still dressed as a man. This proved to be the seed from which BLOOD OF THE LAMB grew. The result was an immediate and overwhelming success.
