HAVING trouble getting an operation done'.’ Then the Traverse Theatre is the place to be. And The Cow Jumped Over The Moon by Donna Franceschild (until 25 November) has enough medical equipment on show to make
Florence Nightingale blush. Putting the operating back into theatre has been no mean task and many a hospital has had to be approached on bended (housemaid‘s) knee. Their only concern now is what might happen during the next electrical storm.
