An up-close-and-personal look at life on the neurology ward of a large urban hospital.
Due to popular acclaim, The Marsh San Francisco is delighted to extend Alison Whittaker’s VITAL SIGNS through September 16, 2012. This will be the final extension of this extraordinarily popular and acclaimed show. Whittaker, a registered nurse at a major American hospital, takes you behind the scenes for an intimate look at the nurses, patients and the patients’ families, all of whom must cope with the blood- and-guts of real life on the wards. From gossip in the nurse’s break room to diaper changes, catheters, despair, hope and humanity, this is a frank, shocking, absurd and heart-warming glimpse of real-life in the hospital. For Whittaker, who started her budding solo-performance career by taking classes at The Marsh, the success of her first solo show on its stage is a dream come true.
Through September 16, 2012.
