‘The Greatest Wealth’ at The Old Vic

Save 50 percent when you book this celebration of the NHS through us

WHAT IS IT? A series of monologues at The Old Vic that commemorate 70 years of the NHS – with tickets exclusively discounted for Time Out. WHEN IS IT? Monday 25 June, Tuesday 26 June and Friday 29 June. WHY BUY? This year, the National Health Service is 70 years old, and to this day, is regarded across the world as a standard-bearer of public health services. As its founder Aneurin Bevan MP said: ‘No society can legitimately call itself civilised if a sick person is denied medical aid because of lack of means.’ To celebrate the NHS’s birthday, eight monologues, directed by Adrian Lester and curated by Lolita Chakrabarti, have been specially commissioned for the Old Vic. Each monologue will reflect a decade in the life of the NHS, and each evening will feature music performed by Gloria Obianyo. Book through us, and you’ll save 50 percent on ticket prices – ours start at just £7.50. Don’t miss out on this commemoration of one of Britain’s greatest institutions. WHAT’S ON THE PROGRAMME? The eight monologues will be split over two performances on the Monday and Tuesday, and tickets for these can be bought separately or together. All eight monologues will be performed on Friday in a double bill performance. 1940s: ‘Boo’, by Jack Thorne, performed by Sophie Stone 1950s: ‘At The Point of Need’, by Paul Unwin, performed by David Threlfall 1960s: ‘Rivers’, written and performed by Meera Syal 1970s: ‘Sister Susan’, by Moira Buffini, performed by Dervla Kirwan 1980s: ‘Speedy Gonzales’, by Lolita Chakrabarti, performed by Art Malik 1990s: ‘Family Room’, by Courttia Newland, performed by Jade Anouka 2000s: ‘Choice & Control’, by Matilda Ibini, performed by Ruth Madeley 2010s: ‘The Nuchess’, by Seiriol Davies, performed by Louise English This is valid for one ticket to ‘The Greatest Wealth’ at The Old Vic.
