The Euthanasist is a one-person play that examines the nature of care giving, devotion and losing one's self in a self-imposed torture of the day to day. Through story and imagery, the landscape of one woman's rationale is revealed as she questions her relationship to living and others' desire to die. The Euthanasist is written by internationally produced and award-winning playwright Liza Lentini and directed by Alan Miller. Certain to stir and provoke, The Euthanasist will leave the audience talking well after the show has ended.
