Synopsis


First, do no harm.


On an ordinary day, at a private hospital, a young woman fights for her life.


A priest arrives to save her soul.


Her doctor refuses him entry.


In a divisive time, in a divided nation, a society takes sides.


The latest smash-hit by "Britain's best director" (The Telegraph) is a "provocative, wonderfully upsetting" (The Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and identity politics, "one of the peaks of the theatrical year" (The Guardian) and a "devastating play for today" (Financial Times).
