-Voted one of the Top 10 PLAYS in LA by STAGE RAW

-100% SWEET on

-“This is an oddly enthralling tale that’s well packaged in gritty, sensual writing that explores themes of sexuality, racism, and love, both erotic and spiritual.”
Lovell Estell III – LA STAGE RAW

-“It’s fascinating to witness Tomas and Semaj present their dance of many characters, reflecting the frustrations of a cooling affair at the same time insatiably making the beast with two backs. Edwards’ script is tight. Solid performances make this an hour well spent.”
Michael Sheehan – ON STAGE LOS ANGELES

- “A brilliant vision of the sexual politics that manifest between lust and love, man and woman.” – DE
- “I want to see it again!” – KY
- “Incredibly entertaining & spooky as hell.” – WCS
- “A tight little gem of powerhouse acting… a script so raw and pithy the hour zooms by and leaves you reeling. I’ve never seen such creative exploration of insatiable female sexuality… though not for the prudish!” – NM

Michael Phillip Edwards directs Phrederic Semaj and Maria Tomas in BLOOD, A Voodoo Love Story.

What do you do when the passion has left your marriage? What do you do when you have a mere hour to regain your sexual spark or face a horrible death as consequence?

That might sound a little extreme, but the couple in BLOOD is not just any couple. When they were married by a Voodoo Priestess in Jamaica, a third party was bound together with them in their union- a female demon who feeds on sexual pleasure, a succubus named BLOOD. If they do not satisfy her, she will kill them.

BLOOD is about much more than just sex; it explores racism, love, communication and gender roles- a dark and erotic piece of theatre: alternately funny, sexy, moody and spine-tingling.

Writer/director Michael Phillip Edwards neatly dissects racial as well as gender politics to create a daring, spirited work that effortlessly makes the case for female and male sexuality in the same breath.
