The Drugs Don’t Work: A Tale of Resistance
There are a limited number of free tickets available for Aston staff, students, friends and families for a stage play on antibiotics resistance hosted at the Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum on Thursday 13 April.
Join Aston University’s Professor Anthony Hilton and the Hobgoblin Theatre Company for a stage play with a difference. Antibiotics are now a common part of life, most people will have been prescribed a course by their GP. But what happens when people misuse them? When they are over prescribed? Or when they stop working?
With clever use of dramatic excerpts and a panel of experts led by Anthony Hilton, Professor of Microbiology and star of Grime Scene Investigators (BBC Three), this Meet the Experts play will answer these questions and many more common misconceptions about antibiotics.
Audience members will get the opportunity to vote on a range of scenarios and the chance to ask questions of our experts; who include a pharmacist, microbiologist, social scientist and clinician.
There are two performance showing times:
13:00 to 14:00
15:00 to 16:00
Please note: this ticket does not give you entry to the Thinktank Science Museum, yoiu will need to purchase entry to Thinktank as normal.
