A month after stating “we will stop the top-down reorganisation of the NHS that has got in the way of patient care”, the government launched the biggest top-down reorganisation the service had seen in its 65-year history.

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 institution?

“Hilarious and hard-hitting… Moves to tears”
The Observer

“Our theatre has long been crying out for a new play on the subject… Urgently topical”
The Guardian

“Urgent, clever, anarchic… A very funny script.  I defy anyone to leave without a renewed sense of pride in our greatest institution, and some serious concerns about its future.”
Time Out

“Powerful, inspiring and entertaining… gliding between raw political commentary, human poignancy and laugh-out-loud comedy which veers to the delightfully surreal”
The Bury Free Press

Stella Feehily’s plays include Duck, O Go My Man, Dreams of Violence and Bang Bang Bang.
