Covid and Me

Covid and Me Trailer: Featuring from L to R - Blane Kelly,David Sterne, Shaheen Khan, Clare Perkins, Peter Singh, Cherrylee Houston, Adaya Henry 
Covid and Me was commissioned by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and produced in partnership with Theatre of Debate and the University of Leeds.

Medical research is playing a key role in bringing the COVID-19 pandemic under control. The UK is delivering pioneering research studies into COVID-19, including to develop treatments and vaccines. The NIHR needs as many people as possible, from every part of the UK’s population to consider taking part in these studies and help the NHS find the solution.

To show how people from different communities have been affected by the pandemic and to underline the importance of COVID-19 research, Theatre of Debate have co-produced with people from these communities, a series of seven short film monologues in the ‘Talking Heads’ style popularised by Alan Bennett.
