Roger Karshner

Published by Samuel French Inc

2 Male 2 Female

Herb has just been admitted to the hospital with a non-specific illness where his wife, Edna, confronts him regarding a will, his options, and insists he see her brother, Bruce, a high-powered attorney

Herb is reluctant, but agrees to see Bruce who, during the confrontational visit, passes out and lapses into a coma

Bruce is now hospitalized and Herb appoints himself as his watch-dog to assure the medical "idiots" don't pull the plug

Herb and Edna invite Bruce's wife, Blanche, to move in with them during Bruce¹s confinement, all agreeing to take round-the-clock shifts with Bruce

After a month, Bruce's condition remains static and the situation becomes stressful, leading to humorous conflict - a human lesson regarding mortality and the inability to change

"Mr Karshner has written a play that is funny, compassionate and highly entertaining embracing a contemporary theme and subject to which we can all relate. A truly sparkling evening of theater" ~ San Antonio Express-News
