The fourth of five new, solo shows by five writers, performed the length and breadth of Wales. These monologues will be intimate, heartfelt love letters to an institution with which all of us have had – or will have – a relationship, at some stage of our lives.

NHS70: FOR ALL I CARE
A LOVE LETTER TO THE NHS
PART OF THE NHS70 FESTIVAL
National Theatre Wales

Directed by Jac Ifan Moore
Venue 1, Georgetown, Tredegar, Blaenau Gwent NP22 4LD
12-14 July 2018, 8pm (& 5pm 14 July)
The signs are all there that Clara is not going to have a good day. She’s woken up with a fuzzy head, a compulsive wink and can’t recall if she’s taken her medication or not.
Missing tablets will be the least of her problems if she doesn’t get herself into Ebbw Vale and grab all of the items that are on her shoplifting shopping list for Diane, aka, the devil.
Mental health nurse Nyri is also not having a good time. She’s late, hungover (after a big night out with colleagues from nearby Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan) and up against a system that puts pound signs before people and a line manager who makes David Brent look like a decent bloke.
Her home life in Tredegar is also complicated. Her teenage son is playing up and her mum has recently passed away.
Two women, two sets of interweaving, unexpected connections and one unforeseen collision course in the very town where the NHS began…
