For those foolish enough to love and fight for the NHS
SPECIAL MEASURES takes a deep breath and examines the truth about the origins of the NHS CRISIS and who is to blame.
Is it the Doctors? The Nurses?
Is it the OLD GITS - the ageing population with complex needs?
Is it the FAT GITS - obese poor people who will insist on eating junk food after their minimum wage shift work.
Or is the MAD GITS - dementia relatives who refuse to die?
Featuring songs from:
Tears for Fears
Well it was ours... and we are fighting to get it back again
The show offers a rare chance to understand what is going on inside our NHS in a very different way. Steve comes complete with sound system, megaphone and rubber ducks! You just need a pub, club or village hall.
Steve captures the tears, the laughter but most of all the spirit and determination to fight for our NHS. You're left a little shocked yet uplifted and inspired."
Lorna, Hands off Hinchingbrooke
Anthems for Accidental Activists
A musical cabaret inspired by the country's greatest institution and those with the faith to fight...
Cambridge - Hilary
It will make you laugh, cry and most importantly angry! You'll leave wanting to do something!
Chorley - Jenny
An absolutely brilliant night at Special Measures! Huge thanks to him for bringing this wonderful show to Chorley. The best campaign night in a long while! Brilliant!
Grantham - Fighting4LifeLincs
Everyone should see this show, a good mix of information, entertainment and audience participation. Energetic, but also soulful at times. I would happily recommend this thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Norwich - Sue
'Grab your maracas and shimmy along to this fun event with a serious agenda. Steve highlights the gradual erosion of the NHS we know and love from under our noses . Great singalong tunes and his “Quango quango quango” is not to be missed !'
Huddersfield - CK999
If you want to find out what's really going on with the NHS this is the show to see. Brought a tear to many eyes - for all sorts of reasons.
