Mosquito Day 1Mosquito Day

As part of their Mosquito Day celebration I was asked by The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to write and direct a short 25 minute piece exploring the discovery of the mosquito transmission of Malaria by Nobel Prize winner Sir Ronald Ross in 1897.

The event itself consisted of an afternoon tea recreating similar annual celebratory ‘Tiffins’ held in the thirties to commemorate the discoveries made by Sir Ronald. As well as writing and directing I played the role of Sir Ronald.

We had a very nice review in The New Scientist, which was a first for me.
