This May Hurt a Bit
A witty, tender, and occasionaly surreal exploration of one family's experience of the NHS. 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. Stella Feehily's play explores one family's journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved institution? This May Hurt A Bit premiered in 2014, on a UK tour co-produced by Out of Joint, and Octagon Theatre, Bolton.
