“You stick a knife close to an artery, boy do you know it. Then you’re in tiger country.”
This March, take a peek at life inside a London hospital at Christmas time. Exhausted A&E staff power through gruelling shifts to care for patients and battle management, while finding little time for festive cheer.
Nina Raine’s wry yet compassionate Tiger Country spotlights the hectic days and nights of unsung NHS heroes. With direction from Nico Rao Pimparé, the interwoven personal and professional lives of these medics unfold at a rapid pace.
In an era of perpetual healthcare crises, this timely play serves as an entertaining yet moving portrait of embattled frontline workers soldiering on no matter the season.
