Wanstead resident takes to the stage with paramedic-inspired play


A Wanstead resident has co-written a play about NHS paramedics, inspired by her dad’s career at Whipps Cross Hospital.

“My dad was a paramedic. I haven’t followed in his footsteps – I am an actor and writer – however, I have been so influenced by him that I’ve spent the last five years writing a verbatim play about NHS paramedics called I Couldn’t Do Your Job,” said Hannah Fayers. Following two performances in Hornchurch, the show will move to The Pleasance Theatre in Islington from 4 to 7 May.
