This May Hurt A Bit

The Out Of Joint Theatre Company tackles the complex system of the NHS in this new play from Stella Feehily at the St James Theatre. The production is directed by Max Stafford-Clark and is described as a witty drama, giving audiences an insight into the process of utilising the NHS, an institution that is both fiercely divisive and a national treasure at the same time.

The company presents a story in which a family delves into the complex maze of the National Health Service, using wit and imagination to ask some much needed questions. After all, it is an institution that is also mentioned by political parties, whether they are announcing major changes or assuring that they will leave it alone, and This May Hurt A Bit asks us to consider what the future has in store.

Stella Freehily is a celebrated playwright who has previously penned a range of works that have been staged at venues like the Royal Court Theatre and the Soho Theatre, some of which have been under the banner of Out Of Joint. Her previous credits include Dreams Of Violence for Out Of Joint and Catch (alongside four other writers) for the Royal Court.

Max Stafford-Clark, meanwhile, is the founder of Out Of Joint and was previously the Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre. In recent years he has directed the likes of Top Girls at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Bang Bang Bang at the Royal Court Theatre and The Big Fellah at the Lyric Hammersmith, all of which have been presented by Out Of Joint.

This May Hurt A Bit appears at the St James Theatre following the successful appearance of hit musical Urinetown. The latter ends its run in early May, with This May Hurt A Bit following it from Wednesday 14th May 2014.
