M6 (1 young West Indian, under 40, 2 elderly); F6 (1 West Indian, 1 elderly) (1F old, non-speaking). Mixed hospital ward
By the successful author of Kindly Leave the Stage and Shut Your Eyes and Think of England, comes this very funny take on the National Health Service. Chaos erupts as patients, agency nurses, doctors and sisters battle it out at the start of another busy weekend on the under-funded and under-staffed mixed ward of St Christopher's Hospital. A catalogue of disastrous mistaken identities leads to wrongful diagnosis, visitors becoming patients, and all manner of medical mishaps.
