No Help Sent

No Help Sent

This play is set in the recent future, in an England where the government have approved a bill to cancel the NHS, private health care is now the only option. With no money, sharing a flat with 3 of his mates, a third year university student is diagnosed with cancer, and it seems he must now live his life on a timer.

Refusing to believe there is no hope, one of the group defies the constructs that have been placed around them, and, by any means necessary, attempts to save his friend.

A fast paced, and heart-breaking dark comedy that challenges the human suffering behind the political manipulation of the NHS. Running time one hour.

’No Help Sent is a funny, urgent, emotionally honest play that confronts an all too possible future scenario’ Robert Farquhar, Playwright (God’s Official, Kissing Sid James).
