Jump to performances and prices Buy Tickets

Winner of an Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2018

Directed by Nicolas Kent

Mark Thomas is 54, the NHS is 70, UK national average life expectancy is 84. If Mark makes it to 84 the NHS will be 100, what will they both look like? Based on a series of interviews with leading experts in and on the NHS and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Thomas working with director Nicolas Kent uses his own demise to explore the state we’re in. What's going right, what’s going wrong and how does it get better?

Suitable for ages 16+
