Charlie has cystic fibrosis, a condition that causes a build-up of mucus. Lovely. But with a new girlfriend and a ‘wonder drug’ called Kaftrio on the horizon, what can stop him now?

“How about an E. coli infection?” says the universe. “Oh, and a pandemic brought about by a virus you’re vulnerable to.” “Balls”, says Charlie.

Join Charlie Merriman for a rollicking course of intravenous antibiotics set to 80s music in his debut one-man show! Come meet the bugs he’s had and the drugs that treat them as he takes a fresh look at the relationship between physical and mental health.

Will the government follow their own lockdown guidelines (spoiler: no)? Will Charlie resist the thrill of daytime TV (spoiler: no)? And will the dashing new Wonder Drug save the day (no spoilers)?

(This show will also be streamed 2 weeks later – see below)
