Allelujah! (12A Live)

Thursday 1 Nov 20187:00pm

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 is as sharp as The History Boys and as funny as The Lady in the Van.

The production will be filmed live and released to cinemas on 1 November
