Kal is seriously considering euthanizing 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. 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 five 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.

Praise for Rounds

“Rounds is a lesson in vulnerability. Without vulnerability we will never learn and we will never recover.” Exeunt Theatre Magazine

"One of the most important things the show conveys is the psychological state of the Junior Doctors.” Female Arts

The survivors of a natural disaster have been stuck on a ship for thirty days. As the damage done to their world becomes clear, they have to find a way to rebuild their lives…How much humanity will we sacrifice when our lives are at stake?

This new, ambitious devised piece by Backpack Theatre combines touching observations and outrageous humour in a dynamic, physical piece that is sure to make the audience laugh, gasp and reflect.

Following their debut in 2016, with Bibs, Boats, Borders & B*stards about the refugee crisis, described as a “great first show”, “tear-jerking” and a “call for individuals to take greater responsibility”, Backpack Theatre stages a new call-to-arms piece about the long-term effects of our carelessness.
