NT Live: Allelujah!

★★★★ “Sharp, funny and subversively political” – The Guardian

★★★★ “Leaves you bobbing on a wave of happiness” – Independent

Filmed live at London’s Bridge Theatre during its limited run, don’t miss Alan Bennett's ‘rousing chorus line for the NHS’ (Observer).

The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an efficiency drive. A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir.

Alan Bennett’s celebrated plays include The History Boys, The Lady in the Van and The Madness of George III, all of which were also seen on film. ALLELUJAH! is his tenth collaboration with award-winning director Nicholas Hytner.
