“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…
Drip Drip Drip, written and directed by Jon Welch for Pipeline Theatre, dissects care and cruelty with dark humour, busting taboos while offering its love-letter to the NHS. It stars David Keller, Lydia Bakelmun, Micheal Workeye, Girum Bekele and Alan Munden.
The new tour of Drip Drip Drip visits Plymouth’s The Drum (11-15 February), Bristol’s Wardrobe Theatre (19-20 February), Bath’s Rondo Theatre (22 February), Sheffield’s Theatre Deli (26 February), Birmingham Mac (27 February) and then The Pleasance in London (3 to 21 March).
