The NHS belongs to us. In the run-up to the 2015 General Election the NHS is emerging as the key issue in the party political agenda. The Royal Court is responding to that public passion and debate by staging Michael Wynne’s new verbatim play Who Cares.
Over the past 18 months Michael Wynne has interviewed nurses, doctors, paramedics, historians, policy makers and politicians up and down the country, gathering an unrivalled collection of verbatim testimonies from those connected to every aspect of the NHS.
Taking over the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs as well as hidden spaces around the building, this journeying performance will give voice to the unheard perspectives on the past, present and possible future of our NHS. In a promenade performance audiences will be led around intimate spaces by a cast of professional actors.
