About Under The Mask

In March 2020, hundreds of final year medical students finished their studies early, and started work on the frontline of the Coronavirus pandemic. This is the story of one of them, a newly qualified doctor, Jaskaran. On her first day at work, Jaskaran is deployed to her hospital’s Covid Intensive Care Unit. Nothing prepares her for what she finds. Rows of intubated patients, the blisters of wearing full PPE for 12 hour shifts, and the crying relatives saying goodbye via Skype. UNDER THE MASK is Shaan Sahota’s extraordinary debut, recorded on location using sound gathered in real Covid wards, using fully immersive, 360-degree binaural sound. Audiences listen through headphones, whilst seated on stage, giving a doctor’s perspective on the pandemic and putting you, the listener, into their shoes uncovering a remarkable story of fortitude, hope and strength.
