About the play:

Directed by Edith Freni

Cast includes: Theo Harness, Emily Kleypas, and Tom Rittenhouse

Following a whirlwind marriage and honeymoon tour, Iris and her husband Brock arrive at his family’s crumbling yet overstuffed ancestral estate in rural Georgia, where they intend to begin their new life together. Shortly after installing themselves in the attic, they discover that Iris is pregnant, a fact soon confirmed by Old Doctor Terry, the family’s longtime physician. As her condition advances, Iris begins piecing together the terrifying truth about her new husband, only to find that she must make a terrible choice: protect herself, or protect the very soul of her unborn child.

BLOOD FOR BLOOD is a Southern Gothic feminist horror tragedy, inspired in equal parts by Tennessee Williams’s The Seven Descents of Myrtle, Rosemary’s Baby, and the so-called “Women as Livestock” Bill, which passed in the Georgia state legislature in 2012.
