a new play by Tim Price
directed by Rufus Norris 
Michael Sheen plays Nye Bevan in a surreal and spectacular journey through the life and
legacy of the man who transformed Britain’s welfare state and created the NHS.
Confronted with death, Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan’s deepest memories lead him on a
mind-bending journey back through his life; from childhood to mining underground,
Parliament and fights with Churchill.
Written by Tim Price and directed by Rufus Norris (Small Island), this epic new Welsh
fantasia will be broadcast live from the National Theatre.
