Rebel Angel took its audience on a journey of John Keats' pursuit of self-discovery. The young Keats is a major poet in waiting. He is also training to become a London surgeon in the brutal times when body snatchers were at work and anesthetics had not yet come into medical practice.

Previously heard on BBC Radio 4, directed by Richard Wortley, with a cast including Kim Wall, Jane Whittenshaw, David Timson, Geoffrey Whitehead, Gavin Muir, Paul Jenkins, Jonathan Newman, Melanie Hudson, Ian Masters and Alison Reid.

Rebel Angel was commissioned by The Keats-Shelley Memorial Association and developed with support from the Old Operating Theatre Museum in London.
