Fri 13 Nov
One Night In Emergency marks the television debut of critically-acclaimed playwright, Gregory Burke (Black Watch). Inspired by Homer's Odyssey, this hard-hitting drama charts one man's journey through the wards of an overrun, inner-city hospital.
Peter (McKidd) and Penny (Ryan) are an ordinary middle class couple: childless, career-minded and cosseted. But when Penny is admitted to A&E with what appears to be a minor complaint, their world is turned upside down. Peter arrives at the hospital late. It's a busy night, and the emergency department is full of the ill and injured. Frustrated by the lack of help he receives, Peter decides to take matters into his own hands. He begins to wander the corridors in search of his wife. As he ventures deep inside the building, a series of strange encounters divert him from the task at hand. He is slowly drawn into a parallel world of officious security guards, social outcasts and drug-addicted hospital staff. Will he escape in time to see the woman he loves and atone for past mistakes?
