Rounds by Resuscitate Theatre 

Devised theatre piece based around true stories told to the group by junior doctors

Rounds was developed in 2016 and since being devised was shortlisted for the Les Enfants Terribles LET award in  2016, programmed as part of the Reveal Season at the Octagon Bolton, performed in Feb 2017 at the Blue Elephant Theater in Camberwell, London and was selected to be performed as part of both the Illuminate Festival (Wimbledon) and Off Beat Festival (Oxford), May - June 2016. 

Rounds features physical theatre from Lecoq and Gaulier trained actors interwoven with video projections and innovative set and sound design. 

Resuscitate Theatre has taken its time to develop Rounds, conducting interviews with Junior Doctors, and are very very grateful to the junior doctors who gave up their limited free time to help develop this piece, particular to those who made time to come into the rehearsal room and be on hand to answer any medical related questions.
