Drip Drip Drip by Pipeline Theatre looks at a multi-national NHS care team treating an alt-right Islamophobe and disgraced academic who is terminally ill and desperately clinging on to his sense of entitlement and toxic beliefs.

Writer Jon Welch said: “Brexit, Trump, immigration, refugees – language is thrown around without care. And how easy it is to shout one’s loyalties through the consequence-free, 360-degree trumpet-cacophony of social media.

“But when we actually come face-to-face with the ‘other’, what happens when a human being is revealed? Particularly when, as in hospital, the stakes are so high.”
