Pipeline theatre – Drip drip drip
Next great production from the company that brought us Spillikin:
In an overstretched NHS hospital, a trainee nurse from Eritrea and a Muslim doctor treat David - cancer patient, discredited academic, and racist.
As life ebbs, reality splinters, jumping between the Nazi euthanasia programme, a burns clinic in Africa, and a National Front march in 1977.
But the most pressing reality of all is that Professor David Jeffs has a lecture to finish, and time is running out.
Drip Drip Drip.
Pipeline Theatre, known for indelible characters and breathtaking production values, takes you on a break-neck, darkly comic and taboo-busting journey through an NHS phantasmagoria.
