Michigan Theatre presents National Theatre Live in HD: Allelujah! April 28


Plays Sunday, April 28 at 7:00 PM. Presented in partnership with UMS; Tickets available at UMS.org

The Beth, an old-fashioned, cradle-to-grave hospital serving a small town in Yorkshire, is threatened with closure as part of a National Health System efficiency drive. As Dr. Valentine and Sister Gilchrist attend to the patients and campaign to save it, a documentary crew, eager to expose the truth of its situation, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward. Meanwhile, the old people’s choir, in readiness for next week’s concert, is in full swing. As the fight for survival continues, unexpected secrets come to light about the staff at the hospital.

Alan Bennett’s hilarious new play is a love letter to regional communities and a thought-provoking but stinging comedy on the reality of funding cuts and care for the aged. This production marks the 10th collaboration between Alan Bennett and Nicholas Hytner. A Bridge Theatre production.
