Counting to Two

It had only been a month since our last show but we were back in September with the one-night, musical extravaganza ‘Counting to Two’!


Following one man’s adventures in the NHS and his struggle with prescribed narrators, eccentric hospital staff and Latin, the cast take their audience through a surreal, all-singing, all-dancing hospital. Featuring a live band, two fantastic extras, and based loosely on a true story, we see how patients cope with the beeps and clicks of a very rhythmic ward.


Written by Ciaran Clarke and Daniel Richards and brought to you by Near-ta “Operating” Theatre, ‘Counting to Two’ was the one-night musical firework that we promised it would be.
