Doors Opening...Doors Closing
by Carol Clewlow (Actors: 4)

This play, Operating Theatre’s latest, takes a look at health from the perspective of travel, set in a carriage on the Tyneside Metro, it features four widely differing characters - a female student, a cycle enthusiast, a pensioner  and a radio traffic reporter - who, when their service is held up  find themselves debating the whole question of the effect of jammed roads, inadequate bus and train services  on the nation’s health. Funded by Newcastle University as part of its engagement strategy, the play was  written for the UK Transport Research Centre’s two-day Social Impacts and Social Equity Issues in Transport: Transport and Health Workshop held in Newcastle in March 2011.
