Scenes for Survival | The Domestic


5 Jun 2020

News Story

Expecting a national lockdown to be the perfect time to attempt suicide, a young woman is instead rescued by her boyfriend and wakes on a crowded hospital ward. There she finds much-needed comfort from an unexpected and welcome source of humanity.

Kristi McDonald stars in a new short piece from writer Uma Nada-Rajah, who is herself working as a staff nurse for NHS Scotland during the current crisis. Directed by Beth Morton.

Produced by National Theatre of Scotland, in association with BBC Scotland, Screen Scotland, BBC Arts’ Culture in Quarantine project and Beacon Arts Centre, with support from Hopscotch Films.
