‘The health of the people was replaced by the wealth of the pound’ #TheGreatestWealth @oldvictheatre A touching, topical reminder of the wonder that is the #NHS making @CordeliaKeston and I ask, what can we DO?

My two theatre worlds collided tonight in #TheGreatestWealth @oldvictheatre. Poignant writing and performance from @MeeraSyal. Even a mention of Withington Hospital, Manchester, my birthplace! (Now demolished). (Not even a blue plaque).
