Blood and Chocolate - The Movie
A cinema-style presentation of the 2013 performance of Pilot Theatre's Blood + Chocolate.
Joseph Rowntree Theatre
Saturday 5 September 2015
In October 2013, a city-wide and ambitious theatrical presentation was brought to the streets of York, telling the stories of the workers and owners of the chocolate factories in York at the outbreak of World War I. With a cast of over 200, rave reviews, and tickets sold out every evening, this was the show not to miss.
Now, in conjunction with Pilot Theatre, the film made during the live performances will be shown in a fundraising event for the Joseph Rowntree Theatre.
If you were in the show, this is a chance to see it played in full out on a cinema screen. If you missed it, you can share the excitement in this one-time-only showing in the theatre built for York's chocolate workers.

Love levels all ranks, or so we are told, but in a 1915 village sometimes a little assistance is required. Enter a sorcerer with a love potion and soon that world is turned on its head.
Alexis, heir to the great Sir Marmaduke Pointdextre, is to marry Aline Sangazure, who can trace her lineage back to Helen of Troy.
Not content with that, Alexis wishes to pursue his belief that people should not be separated by rank when it comes to marriage and he has a plan to make the whole village happy.
He has engaged John Wellington Wells, a Sorcerer, to secretly administer a love potion, which will send all who drink it to sleep and, when they wake, will cause them to fall madly in love with the first person of the opposite sex they see, who has also drunk the potion.
What could possibly go wrong?
