Under The Mask
08/07-10/07 – Playhouse
Hundreds of final year medical students had to finish their studies early and start work on the frontline in March of last year. Under The Mask follows the journey of Jaskaran, a newly qualified doctor during the Covid-19 crisis. On her first day on the Covid Intensive Care Unit, Jaskaran is not prepared for what she finds. The show was recorded on location using sounds from real Covid wards with fully immersive 360-degree sound. The audience listens through headphones and are given a doctor’s perspective on the pandemic as they uncover a story of resilience, hope and strength.
