Drip, Drip, Drip at the Waterside

Published: 17 February 2019

Pipeline Theatre’s new play Drip, Drip, Drip is about a disgraced academic, an alt-right provocateur, an anti-Islamist, an anti-immigrant, a racist… who’s also terminally ill and finds himself treated by an ethnically-diverse care team.

In an anonymous lecture hall, a disgraced academic ‘race scientist’ gives a secret talk about a hero of his. At the same time, in a cancer ward in an overstretched district general hospital, a bewildered trainee nurse from Eritrea, a newly-arrived Muslim doctor, a demoralised consultant and a stressed-out ops manager are trying their best to look after a patient through the final stages of his illness.

Pipeline is based in Cornwall and creates text-based drama. Drip, Drip, Drip is the company’s sixth show. Their previous productions toured nationally whilst Swivelhead showcased in Edinburgh to acclaim.

Drip, Drip, Drip takes place on March 2 with a running time of 90 minutes, age guide 14+.
