This may hurt a bit – New play explores one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS

This May Hurt a Bit and you’ll be getting two dramas for the price of one. There’s the big political story – the current NHS crisis – and then, underpinning it, esteemed director Max Stafford-Clark’s rather more personal one. Between 2006 and 2007, Stafford-Clark lost six months to a stroke – or rather, three strokes that left him disabled and partially blind. And it was his experience in hospital that inspired him and his partner, the Irish playwright Stella Feehily, to create This May Hurt a Bit’s damning portrait of an underfunded health system in action.
