Doctor! Doctor!!

An Ambulance. A Medical Team. A Farcical Epic – Mid Epidemic. The satirical slapstick medical roadshow – part DIY surgery demonstration gone wrong, part old time travelling medicine show. A farcical love triangle in a clapped out ambulance in the middle of an epidemic. This accidental emergency medical team is the front line of the NHS, forming SOS Squad – in an effort to stop the spread of the infection they are calling The Malady. Symptoms are many and varied. You are probably contaminated. Do not be alarmed. Possibly the last Doctor, Nurse and
Paramedic left standing desperately trying to treat the waiting room full of audience before it’s too late. SOS Squad are here to help.
