by Resuscitate Theatre

Thursday 16 March 2017 - Saturday 25 March 2017

Kal is seriously considering sedating the next patient who asks to be treated by a proper English doctor. Dom just wants to get into the shower while there’s still hot water. Felicity is living for the weekend. Lucy got her last choice ward and feels like she’s drowning. Tom’s getting good at tuning everything out and would quite like to keep it that way. Grace is just looking for someone to feed her cat while she’s on call.

They all work in the hospital down the road from you.

Resuscitate present a collection of the sometimes funny, sometimes tragic true stories from the inside of the surgical mask. Follow the paths of six junior doctors as they struggle to balance the pressures of the ward against their personal lives.

Rounds features stunning physical work from Lecoq ensemble interwoven with projection and visual theatre.
