Drum Theatre/Drip Drip Drip/110220

Drip Drip Drip
The oncology ward of a local NHS hospital. Behind the curtain: Daniel, a refugee from Eritrea, training to be a nurse; Rahmiya, a second-generation immigrant Muslim doctor; and David, elderly white cancer patient and discredited academic, fretting about his cat, Roger. Over time, carers and cared-for become an unlikely family, as dysfunctional as any. But drip by drip David’s far-right nativism seeps out, as he prepares his final, incendiary lecture (assuming he lives long enough to give it). Bonds break, reality splinters, and suddenly both Daniel and Rahmiya’s right to call the UK home seems to hang on a dead man’s lips.
