full-length play produced in 2014 at the Southern Theater
not an adaptation – an original play by Steve Schroer
A surgeon finds himself drawn into an underground world of those who seek illegal surgeries. Soon his professional ethics are compromised past the point of no return. Finally he realizes there’s a reason why he has been chosen as the instrument of these interventions…
The Surgeon is Grand Guignol without the need for stage blood. There’s nothing supernatural about it: It’s drama, mixed with dark comedy, that eventually crosses the boundary into horror.
cast: 1M, 2F, 4M/F
