"Leaves you bobbing on a wave of happiness" - The Independent

Alan Bennett's sharp and hilarious new play is "just what the doctor ordered" (Daily Telegraph).  Don't miss this acclaimed production full of "sing-alongs and stinging wit" (Guardian), filmed live at London's Bridge Theatre during its limited run for release to cinemas worldwide.

The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a small town in Yorkshire, is threatened with closure as part of a money-saving efficiency drive.  A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of its old people's choir.

One of Britain's best-loved writers, Alan Bennett's celebrated plays include The History Boys, The Lady in the Van and The Madness of George III, all of which were made into films.  Allelujah! is his 10th collaboration with award-winning director Nicholas Hytner.

The play contains strong language and is recommended for ages 15 and older.
