Operation Ouch! Tickets London West End | Apollo Theatre

Operation Ouch!Based on the hit CBBC television series, Operation Ouch! is live on stage for the first time in the UK, opening at the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End on Sunday 9th December 2018, following previews from 6th December. The strictly limited season must end on 6th January 2019. Packed with incredible stunts, crazy experiments and amazing facts, Dr Chris and Dr Xand will explore the fascinating world of biology and show the audience the awesome things the body can do. The doctors will also share their favourite bits from the television show.

Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken are identical twins who grew up in London and trained in medicine at Oxford University, graduating in 2002. They both still work in medicine: Dr Chris is based at University College London Hospital and Dr Xand is the Helen Hamlyn Senior Fellow at Fordham University’s Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs. This work is done concurrently with their media work, appearing together on shows such as The Human Body: Secrets of Your Life Revealed, Frontline Doctors: Winter Migrant Crisis, Horizon, Is Binge Drinking Really That Bad?, Blow Your Mind, Horizon, Sugar V Fat, Which Doctor?, The Secret Life of Twins, Medicine Men Go Wild, as well as their hugely popular children’s series, Operation Ouch!, which has won two BAFTAs and the seventh series of which will be shown on CBBC early 2019.

According to Xand, he is seven minutes older, half an inch shorter and five kilos heavier than his brother. Chris is seven minutes younger, half an inch taller and five kilos lighter – and for this, he believes he is twice the man Xand is!

The European premiere of Operation Ouch! Live on Stage is written by Chris and Xand van Tulleken and directed by Peter Adams, with lighting by Richard Dinnen. It is presented by Andrew Kay and Margot Teele for Andrew Kay & Associates.
