A cast of 1.5 million (roughly) NHS staff show you what goes into a hectic night shift in A&E. A fast-paced clowning comedy caper, devised with junior doctors and nurses inspired by Michele Gondry and Green Wing. From common colds to broken bones, between heart conditions and death, time's ticking for impatient patients (and their beds), so make like a nurse and expect the unexpected. Understaffed, overtired, underpaid, overworked; coping with the absurd takes a sense of humour.
