The Greatest Wealth
The Greatest Wealth, curated by Lolita Chakrabarti and directed by Adrian Lester, will celebrate 70 years of the National Health Service this summer. Eight specially-commissioned monologues by Moira Buffini, Lolita Chakrabarti, Seiriol Davies, Matilda Ibini, Courttia Newland, Meera Syal, Jack Thorne and Paul Unwin will be written and performed in response to each decade since Aneurin Bevan launched the NHS at Park Hospital, Manchester on 5 July 1948. This Old Vic commissioned set of world premiere monologues will salute and discuss the past, present and future of our NHS, an extraordinary institution that supports every single one of us. An absolute jewel in our crown.
