Britannia Hospital - HOME, Manchester.

Lindsay Anderson’s 1982 black comedy, Britannia Hospital, completed a trilogy of films featuring the character of Mick Travis (played by Malcolm McDowell and first seen in the 1968 film, if… and then again in O Lucky Man! in 1973). After satirising public school life in the first film and capitalist society in the second film, Anderson and screenwriter David Sherwin turned their attention to the NHS and class war for their third collaboration.

Sadly, Britannia Hospital is undoubtedly the weakest of the three films. While there are some interesting ideas, some clever comedic lines, and strong performances from Leonard Rossiter (fully channelling his more famous alter-ego Reggie Perrin) as the hospital administrator Mr Potter, Graham Crowden as the ego-driven genius Professor Millar (reprising his role from O Lucky Man!) and, in a final, glorious scene filmed shortly before his passing, Arthur Lowe (of Dad’s Army fame) who plays a hospital patient who gets so worked up delivering a patriotic speech that he dies, the film lacks the formal daring of if… and the sharp, satirical allegory of its follow-up.

The plot of the film centres on Britannia Hospital’s preparations for a royal visit to mark its 500th birthday. The visit comes under threat due to a combination of striking workers, angered that Britannia Hospital has a ‘private wing’ where those with wealth can recuperate in isolation and eat kippers and devilled kidneys for breakfast, and protestors who are demonstrating against a corrupt president of an unnamed African nation, President Ngami, who is resident in the private wing. The film’s sub-plot features Mick Travis (very much a supporting player in this film after being centre-stage for the previous two; McDowell delivers a decent performance with what material he has), now a ‘citizen of the world,’ who has replaced the gun with a video camera as his revolutionary weapon of choice, exploring the hi-tech Millar Centre which is on the hospital grounds. Professor Millar, whom the centre is named for, is obsessed with harvesting organs and speaks of his intent to reveal his latest project, ‘Genesis’, to the world during the royal visit and Mick finds himself as an unwitting helper in Millar’s work.

Britannia Hospital straddles several tones and genres during its near two-hour run-time: it juggles a ‘state of the nation’ commentary, where there is civil unrest and bomb attacks, the comedic elements surrounding the royal visit (Lady Felicity Ramsden is played by a male actor who often talks with such an upper-class accent as to be incomprehensible) and striking workers (with union leader Ben Keating being easily swayed to restore order to the hospital kitchens with the promise of a MBE), an attempt at commentary on the media through the work of Travis and his accomplices Sammy and Red and the BBC film crew who follow Professor Millar around for most of the film, and an excursion into science-fiction and body horror with the Millar/Genesis subplot. Whereas such tonal shifts had been present in Anderson’s earlier films in the trilogy, here it felt as though perhaps he and Sherwin were trying too hard, biting off more than they could chew. The scenes with Millar which, one assumes, parodied the films of David Cronenberg, pushed grotesque imagery to grand-guignol proportions: in one scene, a brain is bisected and half liquified in a food processor to make a ‘nutritious’ drink, and near the end Mick Travis becomes the crowning touch to a Frankenstein’s monster which Millar has created and goes berserk, his rampaging body being ripped apart and spraying all the surgical staff in blood. The violence and gore of these scenes certainly fit uneasily alongside the comedic elements elsewhere in the film.  

The strongest moments of the film, however, come near its climax. When the anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist protestors learn that the Queen Mother has been smuggled into the hospital, they break through the hospital’s gates and are met with a line of riot police. In scenes which recalled the anarchic revolution at the climax of if…, a worker offers a police officer a flower who responds by punching the worker in the face and triggering a full-scale riot. As workers and protestors are beaten by police (in scenes which eerily foreshadowed clashes between striking miners and police during the 1984-85 strikes), a band plays the national anthem while the royal guests and hospital administrative staff arrive at the Millar centre. The film’s final scene, with a chilling speech by Millar (expertly delivered by Crowden) and sounds even more prophetic now than it did in 1982, where he unveils Genesis (a giant brain supported by robotic machine), which proceeds to recite the “What piece of work is a man…” speech from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, is a stark moment and a sobering ending. A brave ending, no less, not just to this film but the trilogy of films. Britannia Hospital may be the weakest of the ‘Mick Travis’ trilogy but that final scene is astonishing and more relevant now than ever.

Come 'Ere You Daft Cow - The King's Arms Theatre, Salford.

Presented as part of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival, this is a two-hander by Paige Gadsby and directed by Rachelle Moose for NorthSouth Creatives.

Upon entering the auditorium loud 'girl-power' popular music was playing, and the stage was set to look like a teenage or student girls' bedroom. Clothes strewn over the floor, make-up, mirror, dressing gown, food remnants, and of course a large cuddly toy. Enter Molly (Casey Morgan). She is upset, boyfriend trouble no doubt. She weighs herself, cries; she looks at herself in the mirror, cries. she binges out on chocolate, cries. There is both humour and pathos, and indeed this first scene started the show excellently and I had high hopes for the rest of the play.

Sadly, the nature of the play; which amounted to little more than teenage gossip between two best friends, in very short scenes, didn't actually go anywhere or say anything. It was just that. One problem that became evident was that because they were simply chatting to each other as girls do [about love, sex, the vagina, dildos, weight loss, etc etc ] the volume dipped and I found myself missing the ends of sentences. The scene changes, of which there were many, were overlong and mostly unnecessary. Most of what was said in each scene could have been covered in just the one long scene.   

What started as a comedy [albeit with serious issues] soon descended into a tragedy. The penultimate scene saw the two of them standing at the graveside of someone very dear Alex (Paige Gadsby), Molly's best friend. We never did find out who had died (or if we did, then it was in a part of the dialogue which went unheard), and yet it must have been someone very close to Alex as the final scene had her staying in bed for a week not contacting or communicating with the outside world.

The play as it was presented, was very disjointed, full of mixed messages and very unclear exactly what the writer wanted to say to the audience. There were too may ideas left undeveloped and too many issues which were given a starting voice and then glossed over or ignored.

Unfortunately what started out as an interesting and humorous look at love, dating and sex from the female perspective went nowhere at all until the last two scenes which came as a bolt out of the blue, totally unrelated to what had happened previously and in a completely different mood.

I would hope that this play is in the early stages of development and would most certainly suggest that the writer decides exactly which issues they want to tackle (certainly not all of them!) and in which genre.

....and why were both actresses always barefoot!?

Who Runs The World? (Girls): A 'Scripts Aloud' Night - The King's Arms, Salford

On arriving at The King's Arms to cover this show, I realised two things, both of which came as a surprise. First, the title of the show had been abandoned, and in its place the company had decided on their usual and regular title of  'Scripts Aloud' [Manchester ADP having a regular monthly slot at this venue for short script-in-hand performances of new writing]; and second, it was not, as their poster suggested, an hilarious evening of drag, but instead an evening devoted to the talent and creativity of women, using only women writers, directors and actresses in this evening's show.

I am therefore also very uncertain as to why this standard ADP format was part of the G M Fringe Festival. But part of it it was, and so I went ahead to review.

As already hinted at, the Manchester ADP are a company which specialise in championing new writing. Every last Monday of each month, they meet at The King's Arms and perform new scripts, most of which are very much in the developmental stages and may not even yet be a completed script. The writers are present, and it is an evening all about them. At the end of the evening the audience are invited to write suggestions anonymously if they wish in the form of feedback, or if they are more bold, then a Q + A session with writers, directors and cast on stage unfolds, and this is a great opportunity for the writer to see how their script is perceived by others and what areas they might be able to either improve or develop. This evening was exactly that, but with one major difference... it was, as in fact their original title actually suggests, an evening of women only.

Three 15 - 20 minute scripts were presented and the performers were still using the script. Of course this is what it is all about, since the reality is the director typically gets only 3 hours rehearsal with the cast before the performance. They are very rough and ready, but it is the words we are focusing on, not the quality of directing or acting. They are simply there to aid our understanding of the spoken word.

This evening's scripts were 'Tea And Oranges' by Patricia Cunningham, which was about a group of friends gathering to pay their respects to Leonard Cohen. Following this was 'Mr. Men' by Anna Girolani; which was a contemporary and off-side look at the classic 'I Know My Place' sketch of The Frost Report (1966) which saw John Cleese, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett perform one of the finest sketches of all time. Girolani herself admitted that these roles could be played by either male or female, but of course this evening it was all female, and worked excellently. The third and final piece was 'Pink' by Micha Colombo, which pitched a verbal battle between old-style feminism and modern liberalist feminism.

A large and appreciative audience crammed in a very hot and sticky space, but it was, as usual, a highly enjoyable and hugely profitable event, and long may they continue.

Hancock And Co: One Man, Many Voices - The Epstein Theatre, Liverpool.

James Hurn is on his first visit to The Epstein theatre with his One Man, Many Voices show, celebrating over 60 years of Hancock’s Half Hour theatre having had a sell-out tour in 2016/17. 

James is an actor and impressionist and now script writer performing a brand-new programme including one classic episode of 1950s ‘light entertainment’ radio programme Hancock’s Half Hour and two episodes he has written himself in the same style as the show’s original writers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. 

James is the voice of the whole cast. He recreates not just the accents but the personalities of Tony Hancock, Sidney James, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr and Kenneth Williams.

The stage has an old-fashioned radio microphone stand, a coat stand and a high wooden chair holding a black Bakerlite telephone. We go to blackout and the lights go up on a young Tony Hancock, bringing a spontaneous round of applause from the middle-aged audience. He cuts a lonely figure.  Hurn personifies the character of Tony Hancock bringing such a lifelike performance that it is obvious his research goes far beyond interest in doing an impression. He mesmerises in the role with only his characters for company as he launches into the first of three half hour radio shows. 

Billed as ‘bringing to life the classic days of radio comedy’, he switches seamlessly line by line from one character to the next with enough facial expression to recognise each iconic star of the day as they rapidly appear. The repartee and wit bounce from cockney Sid James to southerner Hancock then to Bill Kerr who grew up in Australia with interjections by a gloriously high-pitched Hattie Jacques. His Kenneth Williams was superb, complete with trademark sneer and schoolboy innuendo.

Recorded sound effects are perfectly cued. Hurn captures the Hancock style in all three pieces so unless you were a ‘Half Hour’ buff you wouldn’t know which of the three is the original and I’m not going to spoil the surprise. His concentration is absolute, as is his timing. The comedy is by nature of the material dated. More of a huh huh than a laugh out loud although there were some highly comic moments. That is Hurn’s skill. He manages in one of the pieces to bring the comedy up to date while simultaneously maintaining the rhythm and style of the genre. Clever stuff. 

Hurn is a rare talent and no one can fault his attention to detail. He has a reservoir of episodes made clear by the fact that the three shows performed, inserted on a sheet into the programme, were different to the ones billed. There lies the problem. There is a reason the shows were thirty minutes and three in a row is a lot for an audience to take without change of pace or setting. Die-hards will disagree I’m sure but it’s a niche audience. The iconic actors were of a particular and much more comically restricted if not altogether innocent era. You can see where this style of writing gave rise to the popularity of innuendo. All are dead, and unless brought up on ‘Carry on’ movies this will struggle to reach a younger public. Having said that it’s worth going just to experience the brilliance of Hurn as he skilfully plays with the audience, never dropping his persona of Hancock in his heyday.

It would have been good to see the real Hurn at the end, just to acknowledge he was playing a role but he’s too far gone for that. Like the enthusiastic audience I just want to applaud him. Go to see something different and live before he is snapped up by television.
