In her play, Smith examines the miracle of human resilience through the lens of the national debate on health care.
After collecting interviews with over 300 people on three continents, Smith creates
an indelible gallery of 20 individuals, known and unknown, from a rodeo bull rider
and a World Heavyweight boxing champion to a New Orleans doctor during Hurricane Katrina,
as well as former Texas Governor Ann Richards, cyclist Lance Armstrong, film critic
Joel Siegel and supermodel Lauren Hutton.
The play contains mature themes and language.
