Synopsis: Originally created as a final exam piece by a group of West Ferris Secondary School students, Time Me, Gentlemen! is a devised historical tragicomedy based on the life of Dr. Robert Liston, a 19th century surgeon infamous for having performed the only surgery with a 300% mortality rate. A modern-day doctor seeks to untangle Liston’s contradictory and morbid legacy when Dr. Liston invites them to see a chaotic era of his life play out. Time Me, Gentlemen! seeks to examine the medical ethics of a bygone era, and asks if things do stay the same the more they change, and whether or not that change should be feared.
