Pupil Zero

Over the course of 60 breathless minutes two actors bring an entire school to life. The twist being is that the school is in quarantine due to a newly discovered virus. 

The show unpacks the nature of hysteria over disease which can turn civilised societies into frenzied mobs in an instant. The run down four room rural primary school is like a battleground. As teachers fight amongst themselves and the children descend into an inevitable Lord of the Flies scenario, who will rise above the Ebola-like hysteria and restore sanity to heartland New Zealand?”
