Allelujah! by Alan Bennett

Published on 27th June 2018

The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an NHS efficiency drive. Meanwhile, 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 the old people’s choir (newest member: the Pudsey Nightingale).    Alan Bennett’s new play is as sharp as The History Boys and as funny as The Lady in the Van.

In this programme, he returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade. Soul star Omar, whose 1992 hit single There’s Nothing Like This established an instantly recognisable sound, has since earned widespread critical acclaim and collaborated with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson and Angie Stone. Courtney Pine presented Nikki Yeoh with the Instrumentalist of the Year award at the Jazz FM Awards, and now he’s delighted to invite her to open this concert with a special solo set.
