"Alarm in bed nine, anyone?"

Encountered on a ward round: Daniel, a refugee from Eritrea, now a trainee nurse; Rahmiya, a Muslim doctor; and David, an elderly white cancer patient. Just another dysfunctional NHS ‘family’.

But drip by drip David’s far-right ideology seeps out, poisoning Daniel and Rahmiya’s sense of belonging…

Pipeline Theatre, known for indelible characters and immersive design, dissects care and cruelty with dark humour, busting taboos while offering its love-letter to the NHS.

Open/closeReviews and Quotations

'Pipeline Theatre might be a tiny company from deepest Cornwall, but its work is creating theatre for the enquiring mind. What they have exposed in this production is profoundly alarming and deserves a much wider audience.'
'This is an astounding piece of studio theatre, Pipeline is a company deserving of greater recognition.'
“This piece made me laugh, brought a tear to my eye and flung me into worlds I'd never taken the time to venture into before. Perhaps most importantly, it left a lasting, powerful impression and a little hope that we might move past this time of division. In a time where nationalism is the newest superbug, this couldn't come sooner.”
"Awesome performance by @theatrepipeline about race and culture in the NHS - very real, thought provoking & laugh out loud hilarious"
Audience feedback
​ "This is a really important play with brilliant performances by the cast. It has many layers exploring racism in the NHS - it is moving, funny in parts & very poignant."
