Set inside an underground bunker, Surreal Hospital is an ensemble drama which explores themes of love, mistrust, guilt and moral dilemma. A government funded arms company is supplying rebel fighters with artillery, a scandal recently brought to light by war journalist Otis Clarke. Civil war ensues; Otis has been missing for weeks. Nadine, Hubert and Theo’s makeshift hospital becomes refuge for wounded Otis Clarke. The incentive to heal him decreases when it is revealed he is wanted by both the Government and bounty hunters, dead or alive. Otis soon becomes the catalyst for disaster as Hubert, Jasper and Nadine all conspire to eliminate one another, so they can claim Otis’ bounty for themselves. Love may conquer all...but you can put a price on love.
