Michael Milligan's health care plays:
Mercy Killers and Side Effects
running in rep, May 19 through June 3
Michael Milligan, performer and playwright, gives us an unblinking look at health care in America with two new stories each told from different perspectives.
Mercy Killers focuses on those seeking care, specifically how a blue collar American grapples with his red state ideals when he realizes the measures he must take to care for his beloved wife.
Side Effects tells a story of a doctor who discovers just how taxing it is to practice medicine as bureaucratic pressures collide with his professional and personal responsibilities.
"Exceptional. In our ever present day of political discourse, finger pointing, and profitable racket over healthcare, Milligan manages to strip down the arguments by humanizing them to a frustrating, but immensely profound degree." Manhattan Digest
