As this year sees the NHS turn 70, we take a look behind the scenes of a busy cancer ward in a hospital in Wales today, with a script and songs created from interviews with real nurses. This new play shines a light on nurses’ experiences — the challenges they face in their day-today work and the mischief, sisterhood and sense of vocation that sustains them. A heartfelt depiction of the life and work of these real-life heroes who care for us and our loved ones within a healthcare system that’s under perpetual strain.
Presented in association with Pontio
On tour November – December 2018
This is a Welsh-language production. The Sibrwd app provides a live audio synopsis for non-Welsh speakers and Welsh beginners. Full information available here.
As this production is an integral part of the company’s exploration of the theme Care and Community, and comes at the end of a special year in the history of the National Health Service, a special offer is available of concession price or 10% off ticket price for all NHS staff. NHS staff are kindly asked to show their ID card and quote ‘NyrsysGIG’ when buying tickets.
On Tuesday 17 April, we presented the first public presentation of Nyrsys as a work in progress at Wales Millennium Centre, as part of their season ‘Performances for the Curious’.
