Event

The God Committee by Mark St. Germain
Medicine, Money and Morality clash when the Heart Transplant Selection Committee of St. Patricks Hospital have only minutes to decide which of three patients will receive a heart that has suddenly come available. A cross between Twelve Angry Men and E.R., the God Committee takes us into the inner workings of a Transplant Program and a decision, for both their candidates and their program that is a matter of life and death.

The God Committee explores this gathering of seven professionals -- three doctors, a social worker, a psychiatrist, a nurse, and a priest  as they wrestle with their not only this profound question, but also with their professional responsibilities, their personal ethics, and their own emotions. Who should live? And who will die? And how would you decide?

The seven members of The God Committee include Dr. Alex Gorman, a surly and opinionated cardiac surgeon (Joe Page); Dr. Nella Larkin, a down-to-earth registered nurse (June Miller); Dr. Jack Klee, an older, patriarchal cardiologist who heads the hospital's transplant unit and who may have his own agenda, (Stephen Smith); Dr. Ann Ross, a psychiatrist working hard to hide her own personal stress (Kelly Farmer); Dominick Piero, the eccentric and well-intentioned head of Social Services at the hospital, (Marshall Kious); Father Charles Dunbar, a Catholic priest who is also the committee's lawyer (Mike Maloney); and Dr. Kierra Banks, a young surgeon filling in as proxy for another doctor, who must learn to vote her own conscience in this unrelenting environment (Amanda Meyer).

Each one of these people is a qualified professional. Each is driven by the desire to achieve the best outcome possible for their patients in their care. But St. Germain's play reveals that those who "play God" are also complex individuals driven by ego, delusions of grandeur, ticking clocks and the knowledge that their decisions are irrevocable.

While the committee meets, the St. Patrick's Day celebration booms outside.  From Irish jigs over the intercom to green donuts and bagpipes, the festivities serve to add lighthearted moments to the story.

The show runs approximately 90 minutes with an intermission.
