THE PRIVATISATION OF WARD 9B
A half-crazed psychiatrist embarks on a bizarre scheme to get his impoverished ward out of debt with unnervingly hilarious results.
An edgy black comedy about the human consequences of unrestrained economic rationalism, rampant neo-liberalism and a greed-driven pharmaceuticals industry.
“Marshall’s great strength is his ability to produce fascinating and eccentric characters.”
