By Catherine Stewart
The corridors are rife with tumbling troupes of medical staff spouting knowledge, nuns on a mission from God, board members more concerned with snacks than salaries, and clowns trying to provide their best medicine. All the while patients are searching for a way to survive in a system that strips them of their humanity. Everyone is after a little bit of care, but who can they turn to if the hospital itself can’t remain healthy?
Doctor Doctor is a five-act surrealist drama which draws on the traditions of farce and vaudeville to tell the story of seven characters trapped inside an American hospital.
