Upcoming Events in our City of Sanctuary

 

‘Drip, Drip, Drip’                      – SOLD OUT             

When: 19th & 20th February, 7:30 pm 

Where: Wardrobe Theatre, 25 West Street,  BS2 0DF

What: “Bigotry and belonging and a cat called Roger…A National Health Story

Bed 6, Oncology ward, a local NHS hospital. Behind the blue curtain – Daniel, a refugee from Eritrea, now training to be a nurse; Rahmiya, a second-generation immigrant Muslim doctor; and David, elderly white cancer patient and discredited academic, fretting about his cat, Roger. Over time, carers and cared-for become an unlikely, dysfunctional family. But as life ebbs, reality splinters. Glimpsed in the cracks: the Nazi euthanasia programme, a burns clinic in Africa, a cross-Channel human shipment. And drip by drip David’s far-right nativism seeps out, as he prepares his final, incendiary lecture (assuming he lives long enough to give it). Bonds break, and suddenly both Daniel and Rahmiya’s right to call the UK home seems to hang on a dead man’s lips.

Pipeline Theatre, known for indelible characters and immersive design, takes you into the darkness with an unexpectedly light touch, busting taboos while offering its love-letter to the NHS.”
