The National Health

Written by Peter Nichols, The National Health was originally staged by The National Theatre in 1969.

A black comedy with tragic overtones, the story is set in a men’s ward of an under funded national health hospital highlighting the red tape and short falls within the system. Moments of improbable farce are inextricably entwined with blood soaked human tragedy.

Jeff portrayed the role of Barnet in the Belgrade production staged in 1970.
