FREE DOWNLOAD OF MARK THOMAS’ SHOW Check Up:Our NHS@70 in support of the Trussell Trust.

Hello everyone,

You know the score. It’s always those with the least who need most help especially in times of crisis and food banks need support NOW.

So here’s a way of helping out. You make a donation to the Trussell Trust and you get to download my show Check Up: Our NHS@70 for FREE!

You can donate anything from a quid to a million and still download the show.

This will run for a week, from the 19th to the 26th of March.

The show details my month residency with the Imperial Group of NHS hospitals in West London in 2018 following surgeons, doctors and nurses. It won some awards. It is good. Please donate to the Trussell Trust even if you think the show is shit...which it isn’t.

Thanks and enjoy. Love Mark x

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS, award-winning theatre maker, comedian and activist Mark Thomas takes a look at our NHS. What state is it in, where it’s going, and what we need to do to keep it?

The approximate UK national average life expectancy is 84. If Mark makes it to 84 the NHS will be 100 – what will they both look like?

Based on a series of interviews with leading experts in and on the NHS and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Thomas, working with director Nicolas Kent, uses his own demise to explore the state we’re in. What’s going right, what’s going wrong and how does it get better?

This DVD contains the final performance of the show recorded at the Theatre Royal, Wakefield. Also included are extracts from some of the interviews Mark conducted whilst putting the show together.
