The production’s co-adaptor and co-director, Sasha Milavic Davies is joined in conversation by author, Christie Watson; comedian and former psychiatric nurse, Jo Brand; actor and doctor, Esh Alladi; and actor, and former series regular in Casualty, Adjoa Andoh to share their experiences both on the wards and on the stage.
Come and join an actor who juggles a medical career, an actor famous for playing a TV nurse, a comedian who used to be a psychiatric nurse, and a best-selling author who was an NHS nurse for 20 years. Find out whether there are any similarities between working in a theatre with actors and working in an operating theatre with medics…
