The world premiere of Dipo Baruwa-Etti's political and lyrical play exploring assisted suicide, change, family and rebirth.
When Wunmi's world crumbles before her eyes, she takes the decision to end her suffering and asks her friend Ore to help end her life. Ore tries to save Wunmi instead, providing her space in her family's home. Wunmi’s presence soon disrupts the status quo of this community-orientated family's, and she begins to wonder if she's walked into a refuge or a trap.
'The Clinic' was written during a twelve-month residency with the Almeida as part of the Channel 4 Playwrights' bursary.
