As part of the NHS BIG 7TEA to celebrate the creation of the NHS seventy years ago in 1948, Tell-Tale, famed for its witty takes on history, return to Birmingham Fest with their award winning play The Austerity Games. Join the rest of the nation for a complimentary cup of tea, some good healthy 1940’s fun and an uplifting tale of post-war UK.

Beleaguered Britain is recovering from the Blitz, austerity measures are in full force across the country and there is a heat wave on the way. But old Martha Britt wants to bake a cake and there are no eggs to be found. To make matters worse it is the eve of the 1948 Olympic Games and she cannot abide sport. Can a posthumous visit from her late husband and the ghosts of the games past, present and yet to come convince her to save the Olympic spirit and herself?
