Housed in and around a converted step-truck, Medicine Show was one part offering to the general public where snake-oil salesmen regale the crowd and offer up experiential prescriptions for willing participants from a make-shift stage alongside a converted step-truck; and one-part intimate storytelling experience designed for only one audience member at a time, which takes place in an old-timey apothecary shop hidden inside the truck.
