Mark Thomas Check Up: Our NHS at 70: Northern Stage


Mark Thomas focuses on the state of the NHS in his latest show, Our NHS at 70, performing between 5th and 7th March 2019 at the Live Theatre.

Following a ground-breaking tour of his last show in which he, alongside two Palestinian comics, re-enacted their time setting up a comedy club in Jenin, Mark Thomas turns his attention back to the UK and to our very own National Health Service.

Selling out his Fringe run once again this year to absolute critical acclaim, Mark’s now famous, unique style of theatre, comedy, investigative journalism and reportage won him yet another prestigious Scotsman Fringe First Award August 2018 and he went on to perform the show for a two week sell-out run at London’s Arcola Theatre.

Based on a series of interviews with leading experts in and on the NHS, residencies in hospitals and surgeries, and with theatre director Nicolas Kent, Mark uses his own demise to explore the state we’re in; what's going wrong in our NHS, how it can go right, and what the future might hold for us all.
