One man’s dream of the NHS, starring Michael Sheen.

From campaigning at the coalfield to leading the battle to create the NHS, Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan is often referred to as the politician who’s had the greatest influence on the UK without ever being Prime Minister.

Confronted with death, Nye’s deepest memories lead him on a mind-bending journey back through his life; from childhood to mining underground, Parliament and fights with Churchill in an epic Welsh fantasia.

Michael Sheen (Good Omens) is Nye Bevan in this surreal and spectacular journey through the life and legacy of the man who transformed the welfare state. It’s written by Welsh playwright and screenwriter Tim Price (Teh Internet is Serious Business) and directed by the National Theatre’s Artistic Director Rufus Norris (London Road).
