If you had the chance to know whether your life will be affected by disease, would you take it? What if you could change the colour of your unborn child’s eyes? Or rid the world of a disability? Our medical records will soon be open to pharmaceutical companies able to tailor their advertising to our individual frailties. So, as we enter an age of unprecedented bodily insight and choice, where do we draw the line?

Reading between the Lines Theatre Company, with Oxford University, present some preview scenes with accompanying discussion of their fascinating new play, exploring the impacts and issues raised by the most significant medical development in recent history.
