Synopsis

A brilliant battle of wits takes place in this extraordinary play. Claire Harrison, a successful sculptor, is paralyzed in a car accident and kept alive by support systems in a hospital. Outwardly she's cheerful and often very funny, but she's overwhelmed by the fact that she has lost control of her own life. As the play begins, she is coming to the decision that if she can't live as a woman, she doesn't want to exist as a medical achievement. Her physician, however, is utterly determined to preserve Claire's life, regardless of its quality. Finally despite the pleas of the doctors and her involved nurse, Claire 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
