The 2014 ANU Medical Revue ‘Caecal Weapon 2: The Rise of Salmonella’ is hitting the stage 7-10 May at the ANU Arts Centre.

Following last year’s ‘Para-Medical Activitiy’, which achieved four Canberra Area Theatre (CAT) nominations and the 2012 show winning the CAT Award for Best Original Work, expectations are high.

The ANU Medical Revue is an annual, non-profit musical production designed, organized, written and performed entirely by enthusiastic medical students from all years (my question – where do they find the time?). Since 2010, they have raised over $20,000 for the Newborn Intensive Care Foundation at the Canberra Hospital. This year, proceed will go to the Children’s Medical Research Institute (who collaborate with the Jeans for Genes Organisation) for the purchase of a new PCR Thermal Cycler required for extensive their extensive research.

Synopsis of this year’s show, care of the show producers:

“Timmy never knew there were cells in his body that could walk and talk and had personalities of their own. He never knew there was an entire society functioning within him, or that he had his own immune guardians protecting him day and night. Unfortunately for Timmy, no one had ever known the likes of Salmonella De Vil before… Join us for a night of infectious fun as Timmy’s finest set out across the body on the trail of a most virulent and seductive bacteria. With years of antibiotic resistance in the making, will Salmonella prove too hot to handle? Or can our immune heroes crack the case of Timmy’s lifetime?”
