Real-life doctor and comedian Stefania Licari brings her alter ego to the stage in MEDICO - at Burdall's Yard for one night only.

In her debut solo show MEDICO, Italian NHS intensive care doctor and award-winning comedian (yes, she really is both), Dr Stefania Licari offers a hysterical and moving exploration of the medical world, immigration and what it means to become British.

Told through the eyes of her alter-ego Dr Anna LaRosa (previously seen in online series MY DOCTOR’S ADVICE), MEDICO marries physical gags, ribald humour and true stories from the medical frontline with Stefania’s own experience as an Italian doctor in the UK. You may laugh or cry, but one thing is guaranteed: you will never look at doctors in the same way again.

MEDICO stars Stefania Licari and is co-devised and directed by Chris Head.
