This week ScriptTank will be hearing The Body Corporate – a screenplay by Ryan Hogan.

The Body Corporate is an ensemble crime drama which centres around an illegal kidney transplant gone wrong, following the perspectives of four characters in turn – a probation officer with end-stage renal disease, his donor wife, and the two black market surgeons who perform the operation. A more thoughtful take on the British crime drama, the film examines the nature of subjectivity through characters separated by their pathologies – both physical and psychological – and their attempts to transcend these boundaries.

The evening starts at 6:45 for 7:00 at the Blue Posts pub, Rupert Street, for this reading. The nearest tubes are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.
