BARE: With Me
BARE: With Me explores the connotations of hair and beauty in our ever-changing society.

The NHS has a funding crisis, A&E is full and ambulances are queueing up outside. This new play, brought to you by the Putney Theatre Company, uses theatre and song to tell the sometimes heart-warming, sometimes heart-rending stories of the occupants of the overflow ward’s Bed 13 and their clinicians.
Long-listed for the Papatango prize, this not-to-be missed play is part comedy, part serious social commentary, and explores some of the challenges facing one of the UK's best-loved institutions.
