|Abstract: ||Originally commissioned by the Durham (Stockton) MBBS course, this play looks at how a doctor handles being called into a situation where a woman is dying with end stage alcohol related liver failure this, apparently, in the bosom of her family. There are many untold stories to explore and speculate on; why did she get so ill without anyone in the family seeming to notice and who is to blame for her premature demise?
The play illuminates the impotence of many involved in caring for those with alcohol difficulties and explores the reality of some family's lives with alcohol. The play is performed regularly for Durham and Newcastle medical students and introduced the one day conference at St James' Park, Newcastle (February 2007) for the launch of the regional alcohol strategy.|
