30 January 2024 - 2 March 2024
NHS drama This Might Not Be It premieres at the Bush Theatre in London.
This new play unflinchingly confronts the hard truths of our crumbling NHS mental health services.
A candid portrayal of human lives at the mercy of the system, This Might Not Be It is written by Sophia Chetin-Leuner, and directed by Ed Madden (Octopolis, Hampstead).
The play was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, and longlisted for the Verity Bargate Award 2020.
This Might Not Be It is playing at the Bush Theatre in London from 30 January to 2 March 2024.
What's the story of This Might Not Be It?
‘You care a lot, that’s nice. It shows your age.’
Jay’s new. He’s just started as a temp at an NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service office. He arrives with little more than a fledgling desk plant and well-meaning plans to change the broken system.
Angela’s seen it all. She’s been working in this building for over 30 years, and nothing seems to faze her – except perhaps this eager new hire who seems determined to challenge her at every turn.
Exhausted by archaic protocol, Jay starts to bend the rules to breaking point in a desperate attempt to help their patients. Trust is shattered, professional boundaries are crossed, and Jay discovers the reality of what is truly at stake.
