An audience of medical professionals, medical students, and medical historians will be the first to hear performed poems from Opera di Cera, the verse drama that was a winner of the 2013 Templar Poetry Pamphlet Awards.

It is an honour for the play to debut in the Gordon Museum of Pathology, which has restricted access due to human remains within.

‘Indigo and Dragon’s Blood’ 

will take place in June at the Gordon Museum of Pathology, where we will hold a performance & discussion based on the anatomical wax models of La Specola. 

With Wax Modeller Eleanor Crook, Medical Historian Anna Maerker, and the marvellous actors Rachael Black & Keith Hill.

The evening is sponsored by King’s College London Public Engagement & the Wellcome Trust.

If you are a member of, or in training for, the medical public, and would like more information about attending the event, contact me!
