why watch adam kay: this is going to hurt

Adam Kay’s show delves into the horror stories of doctors and hospitals. Kay narrates first-hand his experiences as a junior doctor, and the challenges and adversities faced by medical professionals. He delves into the gritty details of the job, that will leave you both disgusted and roaring with laughter.

Based on Adam Kay’s renowned book of the same name, the production explores and follows the life of an NHS doctor in the UK. With successful runs since its premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016, the production is all set to return to West End at its Palace Theatre. The production won acclaim for highlighting the difficulties of life as a doctor in the UK, while still incorporating numerous elements of humor. Kay brilliantly portrays the neglect and mistreatment that doctors are often forced to endure and gives a rare glimpse into their challenging lives.
