Mercy Killers - Presented by the CSU Department of Theater & Dance
The ‘Mercy Killers Tour’- a collaboration with Single Payer Action Network, SPAN is organizing performances in Columbus, Athens, Dayton, Cleveland, Akron, and Toledo to help raise awareness about the continued dysfunction of the American health care system. This Cleveland performance will include a post-show discussion with Michael Milligan about the health care debate and will also provide opportunities for patrons to get more information about this subject.
The play explores these themes through Joe, a man being interrogated by the police over the death of his terminally ill wife. A red blooded American, Joe is sympathetic to the Tea Party and the libertarian convictions of self-reliance and the ‘free market.’ However, when his cancer-stricken wife has her health insurance revoked and they become trapped in the labyrinth of the health care system, Joe’s faith in the American Dream is put to the test and he is driven to make a fateful act.
