Phil Adele plays Charlie in this story set against a background of cuts to our 70 year old NHS. Inspired by Alan Hull’s time working at St Nick’s the play features many of the hit songs he wrote at that time, including Winter Song, Lady Eleanor and Clear White Light played by a live band. Live Theatre wants to bring this incredible music to a new generation.
