About the show
Touring South Wales September – October 2019
National Theatre Wales
Written by Katherine Chandler
Directed by Phil Clark
Performer Christian Patterson
Katherine Chandler’s touchingly funny monologue explores an unexpected friendship between hapless hospital radio DJ Danny Walkman and tough talking patient Peggy.
After his radio show at St Bevan’s Hospital, Danny has a chance encounter in the Garden of Hope with Peggy. They’ve nothing in common, but in Danny’s world everyone likes music, don’t they?
Everyone’s got a song, and if there’s one thing Danny Walkman is good at, it’s getting people to tell him what their song is. Peggy doesn’t give much away, so it’s a race against time for Danny to find, and play, Peggy’s song.
Peggy’s Song was originally commissioned as part of National Theatre Wales’ NHS70 Festival in July 2018, when it was performed in Wrexham.
