Elizabeth Kenny was a healthy thirty-two year-old woman who went to the doctor for a common ailment. A year and a half later, she was being escorted by hospital orderlies to a coffee shop along with the rest of the level 5 patients from the psych ward.
Sick, a new performance written and performed by Seattle monologuist Elizabeth Kenny, and collaboratively created with New City Theater Artistic Director John Kazanjian, explores a patient's two-year odyssey inside the most advanced healthcare system in the world--an odyssey that almost killed her. It investigates how treatment by well-meaning, sophisticated practitioners for a common gynecological issue plunged her into a downward spiral through the complex medical and mental health establishments.
Without sentimentality or polemics, Sick chronicles Kenny's heroic struggle to pull herself back from a precipice, and bravely exposes the forces that conspired to push her there.
