Sarah Nagorcka's courageous new play, Love in the time of MRSA, tackles the oh-so-sexy story of antibiotic resistance. Identified by the World Health Organisation as one of our most pressing concerns, Sarah draws on her experiences as a pharmacist to create a timely and accessible show about superbugs.
This science-informed performance rides on the back of Sarah's earlier production Take Heart Trudy, featured in the 2011 Fringe.
So what exactly is MRSA and how do you make a show about it? Is there dancing?
MRSA is the public face, the Angelina Jolie if you like, of superbugs. Sometimes known as Golden staph, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus is actually the least of our worries; there are much more threatening germs out there with less attractive names. Using characters with plain names like Jack, Amy and Dad, the story of resistance will be fleshed out on stage. There will be music, soundscapes and champagne (on opening night), but no dancing. Yet.
25th Sep - 4th Oct
