Filmed live at London’s Bridge Theatre during its limited run, don’t miss Alan Bennett's ‘rousing chorus line for the NHS’ (Observer) in your local cinema.

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 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 the old people’s choir. 

Alan Bennett’s celebrated plays include The History Boys, The Lady in the Van and The Madness of George III, all of which were also seen on film. Allelujah! is his tenth collaboration with award-winning director Nicholas Hytner.

Letterpress graphic by Alan Kitching, art directed by Michael Mayhew. 

Please note Allelujah! has a BBFC rating of 15

Please note this production contains strong language.

 

Founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr the Bridge Theatre focuses on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.

The new 900-seat adaptable auditorium is designed to answer the needs of contemporary audiences and theatre-makers and is the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial theatre sector in 80 years. Find out more here.
