Careful is a dance/theatre performance about nurses and what it means to care – especially at a time when multiple calls are being made on our compassion. The show puts its audience in the care of five over-stretched nurses.
Developed in collaboration with the Nursing department and with Dr Sue Hawkins, a leading historian of nursing. Supported by Arts Council England.
