Elaine’s niece Annabelle doesn’t think much of her aunt. Just plain selfish as far as Annabelle is concerned. An old hippy expecting the state to take care of her, that’s Elaine according to Annabelle. But will the state look after her. That’s the question Elaine finds herself asking. What will health care be like in twenty years time for the old peace and love people like her who’ve never saved for their old age...?

Operating Theatre will be taking its learning disability play For The Best to September’s Expo 2015 in Manchester — the biggest date in the health and care calendar.

Operating Theatre will perform For the Best in the highly sought after Camp Expo area of the Event, designed to showcase the most important health and care issues of the day.

Around 5000 people attend the annual Health Care Innovation Expo. The invitation to Operating Theatre to take part came after a series of successful performances of For the Best at NHS events over the summer.

For the Best explores the crucial question of why it is that people with learning disability die an average of twenty years before the rest of the population, this in a country that prides itself on equal health care for all.

Critically acclaimed by audiences who have seen it, For the Best has been called, ‘thought-provoking…emotional and incredibly moving…’ and Operating Theatre’s work dubbed ‘poignant and unavoidable theatre.’

For the Best: Health and Care Innovation Expo 2015, Manchester Central, Wednesday September 2nd: Camp Expo: 2 p.m.
