The PappyShow presents


How is care given in one of our most precious national services?

We are the most in debt, obese, addicted and medicated people in history. We ask on a dwindling, fractured and skeletal NHS infrastructure- what is care? How do we continue to care for everyone?

From birth to death, joy and heartbreak in a single breath, Care celebrates 70 years of the NHS.

Following BOYS, The PappyShow return to HOME with their brand new show.

Care has been developed over the past year with the National Youth Theatre and The Freezer Theatre, Iceland.

“The ensemble of actors have a bright future ahead of them… They have raised awareness of how vital and amazing the NHS is and how it should be protected; the passionate political spirit was there.” – Reviewer Number 9

“Every now and again an event comes along that stops you dead in your tracks. It either shifts your perception of what you thought was true; or reminds you that you’ve taken something for granted for too long. On this night, in Manchester, that event was Care…  This offering from the Orbit festival is a real find.” – Quays Life

“Tender, strong, funny, vunerable, charming and so much more.” – Broadway World on BOYS

“Captivates because it’s built on trust and touch.” – Exeunt on BOYS
