Join us for a summer evening of medical history, satire and drama inspired by the current Royal College of Physicians' (RCP) exhibition 'A taste of one's own medicine'.


Throughout the evening, theatre group Rupture in Rapture Theatre will bring to life satirical prints from the exhibition 'A taste of one's own medicine; medical satire at the RCP' with engaging live performances. Plus a range of interactive activities and a chance to explore the exhibition. 

In-person visitors will enjoy drama, drinks and nibbles in the beautiful setting of the RCP's medicinal garden next to Regent's Park. In between three live performances you will be invited to attend a guided tour of the exhibition, have the chance to interact with the performers and explore our museum and garden. Guests will receive a free drink on arrival followed by nibbles during the evening. 

Online visitors will be able to enjoy the three drama performances live-streamed, will join a virtual tour of the exhibition, and will be able to take part in interactive online games provided by Live'n History and Q&As with the performers.
