A hospital play that follows a tangle of doctors and nurses in a busy London hospital, from the award-winning playwright of the international hit Tribes. Professionalism and prejudice, turbulent staff romances, ambition and failure collide in this swirling, action-packed drama about an over-burdened health service and the tenacious individuals who keep it running.
