Hampstead Theatre At Home : Tiger Country

Originally performed and live streamed in 2014, this unique recording of Tiger Country returns as part of the Hampstead Theatre At Home series.

December is the busiest time of year for London’s hospitals. For one particular team it’s business as usual, even with the seasonal upsurge.

"Brian, the urology consultant, is audaciously trying to convince his superior, Mr Leffe, to swap irksome patients. Newcomer Emily has already discharged 5 people and it’s not even 10am. Her boyfriend James, a dishy doctor, is as usual engaged in charming his superiors – not to mention the eye-catching Rebecca. Feisty senior house officer Mark is wrestling with his bossy mentor Vashti to allow him to be more hands-on. And throughout it all, John, the cardiology registrar, simply can’t find a minute in the day to enjoy his roast turkey sandwich…"

Nina Raine entertainingly entwines multiple stories in this action-packed drama that looks beyond the corridors into an extraordinary workplace, full of professionals under pressure, driven by ambition, compassion and humour.
