Hospital Food (Kildare Youth theatre)
Set in the present day, Hospital Food follows ten teenagers from the ages 14 to 18 who are the residents of a teenage cancer unit in a city hospital. All of them (a mix of boys and girls) are undergoing various conventional treatments for different cancers at different stages of progression. Their shared illness bonds them and they support each other as they reveal their fears and hopes for the future while confronting, head on, the very real prospects of an untimely death. Hospital Food is a play about friendship and it’s the celebration of the highest value of life: life itself.
