"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 ever venturing into spoof." 


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.

Written and Directed by Tina Satter
