Venue: The Space at Niddry Street, Upper Theatre (just off the Royal Mile), Edinburgh

The NHS has a funding crisis. A&E is full. Ambulances are queueing up outside. Part comedy, part serious social commentary, this play with songs explores the heart-warming and heart-rending stories of patients in A&E’s Bed 13. Papatango Prize long-listed.

Audience reactions from our short run in 2019

"The pride, passion, pain, frustration, joy, sadness and humour of life in the NHS was beautifully told - and sung - by a brilliant cast." (Audience member)

"Fantastic play with many important messages." (General Practitioner)

"A great way to accurately but dramatically demonstrate the pressures facing the NHS without preaching at the audience." (Consultant Obstetrician)

"Captures the good, bad and ugly of working in today’s NHS. Serious issues are tackled head on but with great heart, humanity and humour." (Research nurse)

Read a review of the previous run of BED13 on the Mark Aspen blog.
