The professional production of The Mould That Changed the World premiered at the heart of the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the Grand Theatre at Surgeons’ Hall. The 3-week sell-out run was performed by a professional cast and live band, along with a chorus made up of scientists and healthcare professionals. Having sold in excess of 98% of tickets across the 3 weeks, the production was granted the much-coveted Fringe sell-out laurel. This production returned for further sell-out performances in Edinburgh and London during World Antibiotics Awareness Week in November 2018.

The important message of the rise of antibiotic resistance and the fragile future of antibiotics needs to rapidly reach all corners of society. Performing a musical is a truly interactive experience that will immerse a child in the evocative story of antibiotics and have a profound effect on their knowledge and understanding of the subject. A child’s involvement in a musical impacts the entire school community and three generations; their siblings, parents and grandparents.
