Allelujah!

11 July - 29 September 2018 Choose Dates & Book
The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an NHS efficiency drive. Meanwhile, a documentary crew eager to capture its fight for survival follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir (newest member: the Pudsey Nightingale). 
 
Alan Bennett’s new play is as sharp as The History Boys and as funny as The Lady in the Van.

 

“Singalongs and Bennett’s stinging wit light up a state-of-the-nation play”

The Guardian ★★★★

“Alan Bennett’s new hospital drama is just what the doctor ordered”

Daily Telegraph ★★★★

“Leaves you bobbing on a wave of happiness.”

The Independent ★★★★

“Generosity, passion and a good heart. Hugely enjoyable.”
