Play set in Covid vaccine centre on its way to Solihull

Sarah Mason 1st Apr, 2022

A DAY in the life of a Covid vaccinator is set to come to life at The Core.

Jabs – The Booster Tour, written by comedy group Three Men In A Bowtie, tells the comical and not-so-comical experiences of coronavirus vaccinator Sally Tonge will be in Solihull on Tuesday (April 5).

Actor Sally re-trained with the NHS as a vaccinator after being forced off the comedy circuit due to the pandemic.

She plays herself whilst fellow actors Christina Cubbin and Paul Wilkinson portray an assortment of 16 characters who appear in her pod for a few minutes each.

Sally said: “I came across so many crazy stories and moving moments.

“There was comedy gold happening in my vaccination pod every day.

“I’d text Chris to share them and it became obvious that a play simply had to be written as soon as possible.

“The play is based on true stories, though patient confidentiality is always preserved.”

The Love Lee Productions team say the show has a few gentle moments of poignancy, a smattering of new songs and a touch of audience participation.

The show is recommended for those over 12.
