    **** Sharp, funny and subversively political The Guardian

    **** Humanity-affirming zest Daily Telegraph

    The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an NHS efficiency drive. Meanwhile, a documentary crew eager to capture its fight for survival follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir (newest member: the Pudsey Nightingale).
     
    Alan Bennett’s new play - a 'rousing chorus line for the NHS' (The Observer) - is as sharp as The History Boys and as funny as The Lady in the Van.
