A Burndt Out Ward is a performed extract of Adam Steiner's 'to be' published book entitled Politics of The Asylum which is set to hit the shelves in 2015.

Politics of the Asylum is a nightmare vision of the NHS seen through the eyes of a ward cleaner, Nathan Finewax, who struggles to make sense of his environment and avoid becoming a patient within the ward himself.
