This is the question asked in Michael Milligan’s critically acclaimed one-man show, MERCY KILLERS. Written and performed by Milligan, MERCY KILLERS tells the story of Joe, a proud American whose patriotic feelings and passions for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are turned upside down by his wife’s cancer diagnosis.
According to Minnesota State Senator John Marty, “Michael Milligan’s MERCY KILLERS is a powerful play that illustrates the urgency of replacing our dysfunctional health insurance system. In this painfully accurate portrayal of the personal struggles of one couple, Milligan makes public the suffering that thousands of American families experience in private. I was inspired by the performance, and energized to move our state from health insurance for some, to health care for all.”
MERCY KILLERS will run for one-night, Tuesday July 23rd at 7:00pm. A panel discussion by health care advocates and experts will follow the performance. MERCY KILLERS is part of our mid-season special events series – check out our website in the coming weeks for more details.
“Michael Milligan has created the near impossible: a passionate evening of socially conscious theater that doesn’t read like rhetoric.” says Merri Biechler of Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble, Athens, OH. “Beautifully crafted and immensely entertaining, do not miss this show.”
