More about The Orderly:

The Orderly Trailer



In The Orderly, raspy-voiced Peter shares his passion for Anglo-Saxon historical reenacting as an escape from his normal life as an orderly in a New Zealand hospital. Through the story of the Battle of Maldon, juxtaposed against the everyday struggles of daily life in a hospital, Peter uses history, literature, and the imagination to enrich life in a thankless job, and to make sense of loss.


The Orderly is a poignant comedy, full of storytelling and character switches, based on Michael Downey’s experience as a hospital orderly and the people he met there. The Orderly is part of our ongoing performance repertoire, meant for touring and remounting in various locations, but for now it’s free to watch from home!
