People are Messy, by Judith Johnson, is a powerful and educational film from Theatre of Debate. The film engages its audiences in an informed debate around patient and public involvement in health research and the social and ethical issues that it raises.

The film was developed with patients as part of the ‘company,’ developing the idea and advising on the script. It has toured schools up and down the country.

Developed in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research and the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, People are Messy tells the story of two very different boys with aplastic anaemia, 18-year-olds Jake and Vik. Their consultant, Adam Callahan seeks funding for his research into aplastic anaemia, but must first demonstrate the involvement of the public with the help of long-term patient Vik and newly diagnosed Jake.

Following the screening, there will be a discussion with local clinicians on how the film impacted the audience.
