Felicity is living for the weekend. 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.

Resuscitate Theatre presents a collection of stories that are funny and sometimes tragic true stories from the inside of the surgical masks by following the lives of six junior doctors as they struggle to cope with the pressures of ward work along with their personal lives.
