Stella Feehily’s new play This May Hurt A Bit explores one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS. Read More >

A month after stating “we will stop the top-down reorganisation of the NHS that has got in the way of patient care”, the government launched the biggest top-down reorganisation the service had seen in its 65-year history.

With characteristic wit, tenderness, and dives into surrealism, Stella Feehily’s new play This May Hurt A Bit explores one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved, and fiercely debated, institution?

Out of Joint returns to the St James Theatre following their raved-about production of Our Country’s Good. Stella Feehily’s plays for Out of Joint have been produced at the Royal Court and Soho Theatre. They include Bang Bang Bang, Dreams of Violence, O Go My Man and Duck.
