Synopsis

A brilliant battle of wits takes place in this extraordinary play. Ken Harrison, a successful sculptor, is paralyzed in a car accident and kept alive by support systems in a hospital. Outwardly he's cheerful and often very funny, but he's overwhelmed by the fact that he has lost control of his own life. As the play begins, he is coming to the decision that if he can't live as a man, he does not want to exist as a medical achievement. His physician, however, is utterly determined to preserve Ken's life, regardless of its quality. Finally, despite the pleas of the doctor and his involved nurse, Ken invokes the law of habeas corpus and a judge joins the battle to determine "Whose Life Is It Anyway?"

Media Reviews

"A battle of ideas and a battle for life. It is a rare successful effort to use a tense and provacative argument, carried on in unashamed vigor and prolixity, with a play that lives and moves." -The New York Times

"As relevant today as it was when it won the Society of West End Theatre's best play award." -London Theatre Guide
