Fraser’s Fossils Synopsis

Dr Fraser and his amazing fossils is a short play about an energetic doctor who was prominent in Wolverhampton in the Victorian era.

The play centres on one of Dr Fraser’s scientific interests: he was an eminent amateur fossil collector. It was performed by professional actor Jonathan Wyatt during half-day sessions for schools/Key Stage Two pupils at Wolverhampton Art Gallery in March 2011

The performances used specimens from Dr Fraser’s fossil collection, which he left to Wolverhampton in his will.
