This May Hurt a BitStella Feehily's witty drama puts the NHS under the stethoscope in a new play which explores one family's journey through the health system and ponders the prognosis of the experience. This May Hurt a Bit is directed by Feehily's husband, Max Stafford-Clark, founder of Out of Joint, the theatre company behind Ciphers, written by Dawn King and directed by Blanche McIntyre which appears at the Bush Theatre in early 2014 as part of a UK tour. Out of Joint makes a welcome return to the St James Theatre following their raved-about production of 'Our Country's Good'.
