Is theatre the best medicine?
What's behind the boom in medical theatre - and where's it leading? In what ways is medicine benefiting from theatre’s interest in it? What do the two worlds have to offer one another? What do practitioners from either discipline learn from stepping into the other? Is this development driven mainly by funding - and if so, is that a bad thing?
Tom Ziessen from the Wellcome Trust will be talking, as will Brian Lobel and Kazuko Hohki is also talking at it (her Sprint show is a caberet show about incontinence!). Alasdair Hopwood, who is doing a project about False Memory Syndrome will also be talking.
Sunday 18 March, 5.30pm, Camden People's Theatre

The discussion will be followed by Brian Lobel's Ball, and Other Funny Stories About Cancer at 7pm.
