Is the NHS up for auction in a ‘Free For All’ to private health corporations? This 999 call features powerful songs, dynamic music, unique video footage and moving storytelling.
Charles Parker, an influential founder member of Banner Theatre, was renowned for producing radio programmes based on “people’s experience expressed in their own words”. He died 40 years ago while rehearsing with Banner, and the company has continued to produce plays for and with people in struggle, in the tradition pioneered by Charles.
Banner is pleased to present its latest show on the evening of the 2020 Charles Parker Day. Free For All pays tribute to a health service still rated the most efficient and successful in the world. Based on interviews with a wide range of health professionals, this Banner Theatre show celebrates their passionate dedication to a publicly owned health care system free for all at the point of delivery.
This event is sponsored by Birmingham Trades Union Council
