This May Hurt A Bit

By Stella Feehily

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£6.49

A witty, tender, and occasionally surreal exploration of one family's experience of the NHS.

A month after stating “we will stop the top-down reorganisation of the NHS that has got in the way of patient care”, the government launched the biggest top-down reorganisation the service had seen in its 65-year history.

Stella Feehily's play explores one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved institution?

This May Hurt A Bit premiered in 2014, on a UK tour co-produced by Out of Joint, and Octagon Theatre, Bolton.

Press Quotes

'urgent, clever, anarchic... I defy anyone to leave without a renewed sense of pride in our greatest institution, and some serious concerns about its future.'

Time Out

'surreal, hilarious and hard-hitting… as theatrically entertaining as it is politically committed'

Observer

'urgently topical… a passionate defence of nationalised medicine and a call to fight for its preservation
