  • Setting
    USA
  • Overview
    Set in a hospital room, the action revolves around Ken Harrison, a sculptor by profession, who was paralysed from the neck down in a car accident and is determined to be allowed to die. Clark presented arguments both in favour of and opposing euthanasia and to what extent government should be allowed to interfere in the life of a private citizen. In portraying Ken as a bright, witty, vibrant mind trapped in a useless body, he left the audience with conflicting feelings about his desire to end his life.

    NB: In many productions the character of Ken is renamed Claire and portrayed as a woman.
