Easter Week 2
“Does anyone leave this hospital alive?” “Yes, sometimes with all the right bits too, just not necessarily in the right order.”
Surgeons is an original, hour-long comic play set in the staff room of a failing hospital during an inspection. Pitched somewhere between a black comedy and a farce, it owes as much to the Carry-On films as it does to Peep Show.
Over the course of the play the characters will grapple amongst themselves to ask the questions that really matter: ‘What happened to the canary?’, ‘Who is that in the cupboard?’ and ‘Why does it smell of glue in here?’
“I hardly think this is a laughing matter.”
