The Drugs Don’t Work:
A Tale of Resistance

For one day only! Join Aston University’s Professor Anthony Hilton and the Hobgoblin Theatre Company for a stage play with a difference. The special performances will take place 5th April only.

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.

Entry for this exciting event is £4.50 per student, which includes both the show and entry to Thinktank Science Museum for the rest of the day, should you wish to explore the museum afterwards. 

Theatre performances take place at 10.00 am and 11.30am, and last approximately 1 hour. 

Please note that the performance is suitable for ages 12 and over.

If you would like to book your students onto this exciting experience, please contact the Thinktank Bookings Team on 0121 348 8001. 

This event has been made possible by ‘Bridging the Gap’ funding* from the EPSRC (Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council) to our AMR4AMR (Antimicrobial Research for Antimicrobial Resistance) research group.
