In the early 1960s, an anonymous committee of ordinary citizens in Seattle debated over which kidney disease victims to choose for an experiment with something new: a kidney dialysis machine. If the experiment worked, a small number of people would live instead of surely die from kidney failure. But who among the selection pool lives? How will the committee choose? Based on that premise and creating his own committee, playwright Christopher Meeks centers the action on one person, attorney Gabriel Hornstein, who desperately needs what the committee offers. In a review of the play in Los Angeles, the LA Weekly wrote, "Christopher Meeks takes this factual scenario and transforms it into a thought-provoking drama, which relates a timely story about both ethics and morals.... Meeks' script is smartly written."
