‘It would be a great reform in politics if wisdom could be made to spread as easily and rapidly as folly' Winston Churchill
In 2006, theatre director Max Stafford-Clark had a major stroke and spent the next 6 months in hospital. The experience inspired his wife, the acclaimed playwright Stella Feehily, to begin this play.
With characteristic wit, tenderness, and dives into surrealism, Stella Feehily’s new play explores one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved, and fiercely debated, institution?
