Derry/Londonderry, the UK’s City of Culture for the year 2013, is looking at the themes of hope and death with a new play Hospital Food. What hopes do teenagers with cancer have? The Retreat is a special room where teenagers discuss their hopes for the future while also coming face to face with the possibility of an early death.

What is said in The Retreat should remain in The Retreat. However, can betraying a friend be seen as an act of love?

Presenting this new Irish drama is a group of young local actors. This is Derry/Londonderry’s contribution to London’s National Theatre Connections project. Hospital Food is showing on Thursday 12 February and Friday 13 February at The Playhouse.
