From the theatre company: Based on her own often hilarious, often traumatic hospital experience, award-winning writer and director Lois Brown reveals the workings of the hospital from a patient’s perspective in her latest play "When The Angel of Death Says ?How Are You…" which opens on August 4 - 7, 2016 at the LSPU Hall in St. John’s and runs for ONLY 4 nights!
This play brings us the hospital from a patient’s perspective. We see things from the viewpoint of the main character, Patience, as she struggles to find a way to cope with her injuries, accident, fears of death and frozen psyche. The play merges the dreamy, surreal experience of the hospital, the drugs, the intimate strangers who are your roommates, and the odd protocols thatconspire to alter a patient’s reality. This is a dark comedy of bedpans and microwavable hats, of IV’s and angel wings.
When The Angel of Death Says ?How Are You... features an all female cast. In the lead role is acclaimed novelist, actress and clown practitioner Sara Tilley. Also featured are Courtney Brown, Monica Walsh, Ruth Lawrence, and nine year-old actresses Emmajane Donnan and Lauren Patten.
This full production of When The Angel of Death Says ?How Are You…, was preceded by a workshop production in May at the Centre for Nursing Studies, which gave the production team and also the audience the chance to experience the play in a real life hospital setting.
This show is supported by The Canada Council for the Arts, ArtsNL, Canadian Heritage, and the City of St. John’s.
