I will be co-directing ‘As Long As The Heart Beats’ an #NHS70 project for National Theatre Wales #NTWNHS70

27 Jun



I am really proud to be able to announce that I have been working on this project since January, and I will be co-directing this new piece for National Theatre Wales as

Having worked in the NHS at the start of my career, prior to becoming a theatre director, I am delighted to be involved in the creation of this new piece of work. It is one of those projects that ties together my interests, passion and creativity. It has been a real joy to work alongside the brilliant team at National Theatre Wales. We have a terrific group of actors and creative team on board and it promises to be something very special indeed.  This is about the NHS, it is about the people who work in it and how it touches all of our lives. It is a piece for now. Do come and join us…

It will take place at the Outpatient Department, Royal Gwent Hospital, Cardiff Road, Newport NP20 2UB on 21-22 July 2018

The stories –

National Theatre Wales asked the people of this country to share their stories and memories of the NHS.

Gathered from across Wales and the NHS, we’ve woven these individual threads into an immersive and engaging theatrical production that will take place in the Outpatient Department of the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport, featuring specially-composed music and interactive elements.

As Long as the Hearts Beats journeys back through the first 70 years of the NHS and looks ahead to the next seven decades.

There are just ten opportunities to see this life-affirming show which has care and compassion at its heart, performed in the heart of a living, working hospital. So please turn off your mobile phones and wash your hands, it’s visiting time.

Co-directed by Marcus Romer and Ben Tinniswood
