Mark Thomas: Check Up: Our NHS @ 70

Tue 16 Feb • 7:30pm • Full £5 • Comedy

Mark Thomas’s Lockdown Live series continues with award winning show Check Up: Our NHS @ 70, in which Mark spent a month shadowing nurses, consultants and staff at the Imperial Group of NHS hospitals. From gastric sleeves to major trauma to dementia wards and back again, Mark was there to witness our NHS in action. This is the story he tells interspersed with interviews with… *gasp*…experts such as Professor Michael Marmot, the government expert on health inequalities, and the then Chief Medical Advisor Professor Dame Sally Davies. The result is a surprisingly emotional look at the state we are in.

This time, Mark is going back to some of those experts to conduct live interviews after the show about the state of our health. How is the NHS doing? Where does it go next? What do we need to do?

★★★★★ Check Up is a fantastic a stirring presentation from start to finish” Reviews Hub
★★★★★ “Possibly his finest work to date… I cannot praise this show enough… a very accomplished piece” Edinburgh Reporter
★★★★ “Thomas’s wide-eyed astonishment is infectious… having painted a picture of extraordinary care and commitment, Thomas is able to fire his political volleys from the inside” The Guardian
★★★★ “An engaging and informative 75 minutes where anger and humour bounce off of each other to good purpose” The Independent

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Wed 28 Apr • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Written and Performed by Mark Farrelly
Directed by Linda Marlowe

Fresh from its Off-Broadway debut and milestone 100th performance, Mark Farrelly’s hugely acclaimed solo play comes to The Rondo.

From a conventional upbringing to global notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was one of the most memorable figures of the twentieth century. Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His courage, and the philosophy that evolved from those experiences, inspire to the present day. Naked Hope is a glorious, uplifting celebration of the urgent necessity for all of us to be our true selves.

Mark Farrelly’s West End credits include Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe (Berkoff’s Women).
