Two amazing plays in rep May 19 through June 3

"First rate....puts front and center two voices that are too little heard in the health care debate — patients/families and doctors." — Washington Post

"A grim but important picture of just how bad it is." — DCist

"As I’ve witnessed many of my fellow progressive friends, drunk on schadenfreude, gleefully share articles in recent months of Trump voters now facing the deportation of loved ones or the loss of their health insurance, I think the two-fold gifts of education and empathy that a piece like this can impart are more vital than ever." — DC Theatre Scene

"Mercy Killers packs a punch for a DC-bred audience. A working class authenticity rarely seen on DC stages. It's theatre for all, or at least for that other 90% who rarely see themselves portrayed on DC stages."  — DC Metro Theater Arts

Mercy Killers

Blue collar Joe grapples with his red state ideals when he realizes the measures he must take to care for his beloved wife. A surprisingly tender love story, Mercy Killers is an unblinking look at health care in America.

“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

Side Effects

As bureaucratic pressures collide with his professional and personal responsibilities, a doctor must reconcile the art and business of medicine.

More than half of physicians in America struggle with
burnout. Playwright Michael Milligan spent the last couple
years asking doctors around the country “why?” Here are the answers, a stunning revelation of just how complicated things are.
