Archives - Whose Life is it Anyway?

by Brian Clark

Directed by Louis Davis

Saturday 12th – Saturday 19th February 1983 in the Auditorium

Ken Harrison has been severely injured in a car crash and is totally paralysed; only his brain functions normally. The miracle of modern medicine is keeping him alive but he wishes to die. To do so he must discharge himself from hospital but being entirely helpless he has to gain the authorities’ consent.

The play examines the moral and legal problems thus posed and the reactions of the hospital staff. The matter is eventually laid before a judge who makes a decision.

One of the most moving, thought provoking and, at the same time, entertaining plays of our day.
