Louise has a friend. Her name is Brenda, she’s come to care about Brenda a lot. Only now Brenda is dead and Louise is heart-broken. But what makes her really angry is that nobody seems to understand why she’s so upset. Instead, everyone thinks she should stop making a fuss and pull herself together. Because who’s Brenda after all? Just someone she looked after. And anyway, really, perhaps given what Brenda was, maybe it’s all for the best.
Operating Theatre’s thought-provoking drama For the Best explores the question of why it is that the Brendas of this world die twenty years before the rest of us, in a country that prides itself on equal health care for all.
The performance includes an opportunity for the audience to take part in this crucial debate.
