Presented by The PappyShow

We are the most in debt, obese, addicted and medicated people in history. We ask, on a dwindling, fractured and skeletal NHS infrastructure - what is care? How do we continue to care for everyone?

From birth to death, joy and heartbreak in a single breath, CARE is a celebration of our NHS.

About the company

The PappyShow

The Pappy Show are a playful physical and visual ensemble theatre company. Formed in January 2013 by Kane Husbands in order to provide a much-needed space for actors to train in physical theatre, we use exercise and training to devise and create work.

We believe that having a space to play, devise and fail improves us as performers and informs the way we approach our work.

Moving forwards, we will continue to offer physical training opportunities for actors and non- actors alike. Community cohesion and working together is key to the company’s ensemble ethos.
