Coronation St star Stephanie Cole takes to the stage at The Theatre Royal, in Bury, for the world premiere of comedy This May Hurt a Bit about the NHS from Mar 6-15.

Told through the character of a lady in her late 80s, who has suffered a major brain haemorrhage, the play explores ‘what it’s like to be beholden to an institution which has been battered by the stormy seas of politics and economics for nearly 70 years’, according to a theatre spokeswoman.

The surreal satirical comedy is by playwright Stella Feehily and director Max Stafford-Clark.
