The award-winning comedian, activist and rabble-rouser is back.


Mark Thomas is 54, the NHS is 70, UK national average life expectancy is 84. If Mark makes it to 84 the NHS will be 100, what will they both look like?

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.
