If ever a play was guaranteed to connect with everyone … its JABS. We’ve all been on the receiving end. But what is life like at the other end of the syringe?
In March 2020, “Three Men in A Bowtie” performer Sally Tonge took the unlikely step of retraining as an NHS vaccinator. She soon realised that her Covid-19 vaccination pod was the smallest theatre in the world … and that the procession of people stepping into it were pure comedy gold. JABS is played largely for affectionate laughs … with a few gentle moments of poignancy, a smattering of new songs and a touch of audience participation. It’s a love letter to the NHS. Sally plays herself … whilst actors Christina Cubbin and Paul Wilkinson portray an assortment of 16 characters … in a play scripted and directed by the BBC’s Chris Eldon Lee.
