Corinth Theatre-Arts’ upcoming production, “Whose Life Is It Anyway?”, is a drama that examines health care and end-of-life decisions when a sculptor is paralyzed in a car wreck and doesn’t want medical technology to keep him alive.
Performances are 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, April 12-13, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at the Crossroads Playhouse, 303 Fulton Drive, Corinth. Tickets, $6 for students and $12 for adults, are on sale at the Playhouse during business hours, 1-6 p.m., Tuesdays-Fridays; by calling 662.287.2995 and at the door as available.
This play has earned CT-A’s Second Stage designation. It is rated “restricted” for mild language and mild adult content and is not recommended for children.
“’Whose Life Is It Anyway?’ is a conversation between the playwright and the audience about what it means to live life to the fullest and what it means to be a human. We see the frustrations Ken Harrison faces as a quadriplegic with no chance of using his limbs again. Through his sharp mind, he articulates his desire to attain personal freedom even at the cost of his own life,” said play director Cris Skinner, who also is CT-A’s artistic director. “This cerebral play brings a timely and serious conversation to CT-A’s audience through the discussions Ken has with his solicitor, the frank banter he has with a female physician and the arguments and sometimes laughter other hospital staff offer him through the course of their everyday duties.”
Cast members are Ken Harrison – Leland Hendrix; Sister Anderson – Cynthia Potter; Kay Sadler – Rebekah Fontaine; John – Jamey Nunley; Dr. Joan Scott – Hayley Anderson; Dr. Michael Emerson – Dan Marsh; Mrs. Gillian Boyle – Debi McKenzie; Philip Hill – Cody Daniels; Dr. Paula Travers – Stephanie Mullins; Peter Kershaw – Ronnie McNutt; Mr. Justice Millhouse – Randy Duke; Andrew Eden – Joe Wallace; and Dr. Barr – Paul Locke.
Written by British playwright and screenwriter Brian Clark, CT-A’s production of “Whose Life Is It Anyway?” is sponsored by Bailey Williams Realty and produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Ill.
