“Sick” play comes to BU

April 2nd, 2012 in Arts, Theatre 0 comments

Hosted by the School of Social Work, “Sick” is coming to Boston University for one night only.  On Tuesday, April 3rd, writer and performer Elizabeth Kenny will give one performance of her one-woman show and host a special live Q&A session immediately following the show.  Kenny and “Sick” come to Boston after a successful 3-month run in Seattle.  The performance, 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.

This event is free for BU students, faculty, and alumni.  Tickets for the general public are available at the door for $25.00.  The performance and following discussion will run from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the George Sherman Union in the GSU Conference Auditorium on the second floor.
