Joe loves apple pie, Rush Limbaugh, the Fourth of July and his wife, Jane. He is blue-collar, corn-fed, made in the USA and proud, but when his uninsured wife is diagnosed with cancer, his patriotic feelings and passion for the ethos of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are turned upside down. In Mercy Killers, a new one-man play from writer/director Michael Milligan, Joe struggles with the uniquely American experience of losing your health in the land of plenty. A panel of public health faculty and regional professionals will hold a discussion with Milligan following the performance.
