Not all heroes wear capes
The National Health Service is the envy of the world and we need it, now more than ever before. It’s the pride of the nation, providing care for all from cradle to grave since 1948.
NHS The Musical gets under its skin, celebrating the people who make its heart beat. Sharper than a scalpel, this fast-paced comedy show takes you from the surgical theatre to musical theatre, pumping with songs, satire, sass – and gas and air. But beware! This beloved institution may be the perfect tonic, but it can also be the bitterest pill. The UK’s largest employer and government’s biggest spender has its own ailments, that just never seem to be cured.
