Meera Syal’s monologue RIVERS is available to stream for one week on the Old Vic’s YouTube channel

Meera Syal‘s monologue RIVERS is available to stream all this week. Rivers was commissioned by the Old Vic in 2018 as part of The Greatest Wealth, their celebration event to mark 50 years of the NHS.

A midwife tends to a woman on a Wolverhampton maternity ward in 1968, days after Enoch Powell’s Rivers of Blood speech.
