Fabulous Mikron Theatre brings two brand new shows to Alcester Town Hall

Ross Crawford 28th Jul, 2018

THE fabulous Mikron Theatre is bringing two brand new shows to Alcester Town Hall.

Get Well Soon wishes the NHS a Happy 70th Birthday while Revolting Women celebrating the centenary of some women getting the vote.

All is not well at St Monica’s Hospital. They’re on life support; facing bugs, bed-blockers and a battle to save A and E.

Hospital boss Simon talks the talk but can he walk the walk? His dad’s had a stroke and his daughter’s in revolt. Now hungry businesses, with an eye on profits, are after a slice of the action…

70 years ago, Nye Bevan gave us free healthcare for all.

Can his dream survive the demands and pressures of the 21st century? Can Simon find a cure for his family troubles? Can Nurse Danuta save the day with her pastries and proverbs?

With tunes, transfusions and titters, join Mikron as they make a surgical strike on the state of our NHS.

Revolting Women tells the Suffrage story through the eyes of a less well-known Pankhurst, Sylvia, who fought for the vote alongside working women in the East End.

Sylvia meets Lettie and they push together to Parliament, to bend the ear of the cabinet. A story of absolute commitment or dangerous obsession?

Full of political satire, song and more suffrage societies than you can shake a stick at, Revolting Women unravels a contentious and momentous movement in history.

Revolting Women is on at 2pm in Alcester Town Hall in Church Street on Saturday, August 4, while Get Well Soon can be seen later that same evening at 7pm in the same venue.

Tickets for both shows are £13 – call Robert on 07769 742963 to book or email robert.thompson@dpdgroup.co.uk
