FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

In a men's hospital ward the patients come and go. Some linger, some die, some face illness with fortitude, others with boredom. The beautifully detailed documentary background is juxtaposed with richly satirical scenes in which the staff become the romanticized characters of a TV series of hospital life.

FEE: $75 per performance.

"A portrait of six inmates in a ward ... [that] amounts to a study of the organization versus the individual, and to a microcosm of our society; but such themes only arise from his concern for the people themselves and their response to seeing each other die." - London Times

"Bittersweet, oxymoronic quality, had a pungency that Chekhov would have envied.... Caught me half in tears and half slain with laughter." - Guardian
