I look through the microscope and see what I’ve got. 
But I’ve never seen anything
Like this…

A makeshift lab. A hospital in lockdown. Nosocomial – or ‘hospital acquired’ – is a collaboration

between playwright Nicola Baldwin, and Dr Elaine Cloutman-Green, Lead Healthcare Scientist at Great Ormond Street Hospital and Clinical Lecturer at UCL, and a group of Healthcare Scientists (including biomedical scientists and clinical engineers); also doctors, infection control nurses and researchers.

A mystery outbreak. Intermittent communications from outside. Science fiction

based on science fact. Inside the body, inside the lab. Inside the story. Experiments.

Supported by a public engagement grant from SfAM.

Over 3 nights, the show will evolve. We are a work in progress.
