Details

A new comedy by John Godber.

When tough actor Jack Skipton returns from filming to care for his ageing aunt, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for. But this might be his most taxing role to date, as he begins an incredible odyssey through the NHS, from cancelled GP's appointments, wrongly booked scans, frustrated consultants, and abusive home carers, who smoke on the door step!

Jack's story is hilarious and heartbreaking, as he and his aunt take on the health service in order to get the right diagnosis, and the right care; as he goes from actor to carer to drugs consultant, and she refuses to admit that she is even ill!

Told in a bold physical theatre style and with breathtaking grit and honesty, Godber's take on our health service is both tender and true, as he investigates what we deserve, and what we receive. Take a deep breath, because This Might Hurt!
