Rachel is a leading geneticist. A predictor, a planner, a rationalist.
She identifies gene mutations that increase the risk of developing breast cancer – allowing action to be taken before the disease has even had chance to develop. Whether it is surgery or a course of drugs, it is all about prevention.
But on discovering that she and her daughter might be carrying a gene mutation themselves, Rachel starts to wonder if predicting illness through science throws up more questions than it can answer.
When science offers you the chance to look into the future of your own health, or your family’s, would you always want to know?
Developed in collaboration with Manchester-based charity Prevent Breast Cancer, this daring new play by acclaimed playwright Frazer Flintham explores their pioneering research and the complex human dilemmas around preventative medicine.
