“Nurses in New England is a funny, charming show by a theatre company I want to see more of … most successful is the way in which playwright Tina Satter manages to create a smart, comic mirror of the medical show genre without every venturing into spoof.”
“With great music, humorous lyrics and comically creepy medical jargon, Tina, a native New Englander, tells her New York audience what it’s like to run a hospital in a small town by the sea.”Running time: 75 minutes
The language of television hospital dramas is given an unexpected comedic and bittersweet spin in stacking up life and death against our most mundane desires. A female head of surgery and her nursing staff secret smoke, bitch and moan, and find the magic in their starkly beautiful small-town hospital.
