From campaigning at the coalfield to leading the battle to create the NHS, Nye Bevan is often referred to as the politician who had the greatest influence on Great Britain without ever being Prime Minister.

This new play, written by Tim Price (Teh Internet is Serious Business) and directed by National Theatre's creative director Rufus Norris (Small Island), sees Nye confronted with death and looking back on his life. His deepest memories lead him on a mind-bending journey back through his busy life; from childhood to mining underground, Parliament and fights with Churchill.

Making its debut on the NT's Olivier Theatre stage, this promises to be a surreal and spectacular new production about one of the most influential Britons of the 20th Century.
