Charlie has cystic fibrosis, a condition that causes a build-up of mucus. Lovely. But with a new girlfriend & a Wonder Drug called Kaftrio on the horizon, what can stop him now?
"How about an E. coli infection?" says the universe. "Oh, & 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 bangers, fresh from its acclaimed sell-out run at VAULT Festival!
Come meet the bugs Charlie's had & the drugs that treat them as he takes a fresh look at the relationship between physical & 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.
