Based on a series of interviews with leading experts in and on the NHS and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Thomas working with director Nicolas Kent, uses his own demise to explore the state we're in. What's going right, what's going wrong and how does it get better?
Following the success of The Red Shed, Cuckooed and 100 Acts of Minor Dissent, don't miss Mark's latest critically-acclaimed show, bursting with his trademark passion and hilarity.
Infectious wit and political fury (Review from Edinburgh Festival)
Check-Up is meticulously researched by Thomas, who manages spins what might be dry into an engaging and informative 75 minutes where anger and humour bounce off of each other to good purpose (Review from the Edinburgh Festival)
Mark Thomas’ impassioned mixture of reportage and storytelling takes the temperature of the NHS
Thomas has a style of delivery that for the first few minutes of Nicolas Kent’s production is pleasingly high-energy but quickly becomes relentless and exhausting
A hilarious, informative, moving, and inspiring tribute
A highly engaging evening at the theatre that leaves me politically striving for change and yet completely content with a hearty performance
