THE GOD COMMITTEE
 

Written by Mark St. Germain
Directed by Lori Robinson Distel
Licensed with permission from Concord Theatricals.

SYNOPSIS:

Medicine, Money, and Morality clash when the Heart Transplant Selection Committee of St. Patrick’s Hospital has only minutes to decide which of three patients will receive a heart that has suddenly become available. A cross between Twelve Angry Men and ER, The God Committee takes us into the inner workings of a transplant program and a decision, for both their candidates and their program, that is a matter of life and death.
 

This unique reimagining of Mark St. Germain's emotional drama brings it to the digital age. The meeting? On Zoom. The time?
St. Patrick's Day of 2020.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS 

DR. JACK KLEE: Cardiologist; has been at St. Patrick’s Hospital for 19 years, though it feels twice that. Director of the Transplant Unit until a bout with cancer; has not resumed their post.

DR. ALEX GORMAN: A surly and opinionated cardiac surgeon. They aspire to be the next head of the Transplant Unit but are a young, hotshot doctor who is tart and arrogant without an ounce of bedside manner.

DR. KIERA BANKS: Surgical Fellow under Surgical Head Dr. Peter Felker, who is rushing to the hospital with the fresh transplant. They are the innocent one, torn over the ultimate decisions they're asked to make.


NELLA LARKIN, RN: The down-to-earth Registered Nurse who is the Cardiac Transplant Coordinator, who juggles the phones, a wayward intercom, and a noisy St. Patrick’s Day Parade outside.

FATHER CHARLES DUNBAR: A widower who came late to the Catholic priesthood, and is also a corporate lawyer, who sits in to see that everything is legit to forestall lawsuits.

DOMENICK PIERO: Head of Social Services. Unable to walk due to a spinal injury; they pilot a mechanized scooter. They are the humane social worker who dispenses jokes and tries to calm everyone. Although this role is open to all types, we are especially interested in wheelchair-using performers and/or performers with special abilities. 

DR. PETER FELKER: The Surgical Head of St. Patrick's Hospital. Only heard, never seen.
