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 was 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.
HeLa comes to you following a successful run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Winner of the ‘Best Scottish Show on the Fringe Award’. Total Theatre and Amnesty International Award Nominee.
