Event Description

Adapted by Call the Midwife’s Heidi Thomas from Alan Bennett’s 2018 play of the same name, Richard Eyre’s Allelujah is a warm and spirited story of old age and UK community activism.

A stellar cast including Jennifer Saunders, David Bradley, Derek Jacobi and Judi Dench make up some of the very idiosyncratic residents of a small Yorkshire hospital (‘the Beth’), specialising in geriatric care. When the hospital is threatened with closure, its supporters decide to fight back, galvanising the local community and inviting a news crew to film their preparations for a concert in honour of its most distinguished nurse (the stern but kind Sister Gilpin). What could possibly go wrong?
