Med Revue 2011: Beauty and Deceased
The Sydney University Medical Society, in conjunction with the University of Sydney Union, proudly presents the 2011 Medicine Revue: Beauty and Deceased. Produced, directed and performed by Sydney Medical School students, and with over $43,000 raised for charity last year, the Medicine Revue has a rich and colourful history that is set to continue.
Gripped by a fascination with death from a young age, Belle has completed her medical degree and has secured an (increasingly coveted) internship at Royal Prince de Beaumont Hospital - finally bringing her closer to the dead. But all is not well in this house of healing. There are rumours of strange research being carried out in the morgue by Dr B East and his group: experiments threatening to cure death. Relentlessly trying to push back the frontiers of medicine, they delve ever deeper into the unknown and not so quite alive, where all should be afraid to enter.
Will the courageous and handsome, though fundamentally misguided, Dr B East and his team be lost forever? What can the necrophilic but oh-so-lovely Belle do to help, and what chance has she got when the headstrong and virile orthopaedic surgeon is so besotted with her?
In what is definitely not the most beautiful love story ever told, and featuring the singing, dancing, and acting prowess of first year medical students, Beauty and Deceased promises to make you laugh, sing, dance, clap and cry. We warmly welcome you to this evening of riotous entertainment.
All funds raised from ticket sales will go to the Cure Cancer Australia
Foundation and the Milk Crate Theatre.
