In 1980, the first show involving both the men and the women of Gay Sweatshop since it split into two groups was the production of Blood Green written by Angela Stewart Park and Noel Greig. The play is set in a mythical future and includes the themes of genetic engineering, and the relationship between medicine, the church and the stage. Although not a critical success, it was ahead of its time in its subject matter.

Blood Green, I wrote that with Angela and that was a mistake. It was an interesting topic and there was some interesting things in it but it didn’t spark between us.’ Noel Greig, 2008
