Hospital 2000

Conceived, Written & Produced by AXIS COMPANY

Directed by Randy Sharp

July 13 - September 1, 2000

Thursdays - Fridays at 8pm
General Admission $5

Axis Company's episodic play Hospital (a West Village phenomenon every year) examines the interior life of a man in a terminal coma. Entering this state in a different way every year, the audience travels with him as he lives out his last few days roaming the vast, dark interiors of his own brain.

Although Hospital is a serial play, each evening can be viewed separately as a self-contained, short play.
