Matthew Zajac : Factor 9

Matthew Zajac from Dogstar Theatre Company introduces their play Factor 9, which centres around the contamination of NHS blood leading on to thousands of haemophiliacs receiving infected blood, and many developing Hepatitus C and HIV. It is considered to be the greatest medical disaster of our time, and this play explores the impact it had on those affected by it, and questions why it even happened in the first place.

Factor 9 is on at 13.55, in the Old Lab, Summerhall, until the 24th August 2014.
