‘Killing You Softly’: A Novel Attacking the NHS ‘Reforms’ Posted by: Peter Bamford June 10, 2014
Set in 2014 when coalition policies are biting more deeply across the country. In a small village community, three teenage girls, unsure of themselves sexually, struggle with both their adolescence and their attempts to understand the political changes around them.
THIS MAY HURT A BIT
Karl Sydow presents the Out of Joint and Octagon Theatre Bolton co-production By Stella Feehily, Directed by Max Stafford-Clark
14th May - 21st June 2014 Tickets £5-£34
14 May – 21 June 2014
“The silence surrounding the creeping privatisation of the NHS in England is one of the great mysteries of current British politics… A very fine performance from the wonderful Stephanie Cole… Feehily’s play begins to exert an ever stronger and more moving grip”
“A very fine performance from the wonderful Stephanie Cole”
'The message is partisan, but it is delivered with such verve, wit and humour that I am willing to bet even the most diehard privateer couldn't fail to enjoy the fun – and might even go away feeling like reconsidering some of their own assumptions.Max Stafford-Clark's direction is masterly. He perfectly facilitates the flow of forms, so that a naturalistic moment moves to tears, a hard fact strikes to anger, an absurdity raises laughter (Frances Ashman's dementia patient combines all three at once). There is pace, energy and clarity. Each member of his eight-strong cast is a joy to watch': Clare Brennan The Observer, Sunday 30 March 2014
