Dead and Breathing



Produced by Contemporary American Theatre Festival

Written by Chisa Hutchinson

Directed by Kristin Horton


Carolyn is a cranky old broad who just wants to die already! She's gone through almost as many nurses as she had treatments, but just can't seem to kick the bucket. With her new—profane but God-fearing—hospice caregiver all up in her "lady parts," she sets about convincing Veronika to help her to just get it over with. Full of surprises, this hilarious exploration into mortality and morality tests the boundaries of faith and forgiveness, prejudice and pridefulness, when the stakes are nothing short of life... and death.
