Double Double-Hospital in Trouble is a satirical look at hospital bureaucracy and the self-absorption of people today.

A sample from the play

Old Man-(Creeps up to Mother and daughter) Hello. I would like a cup of coffee.

Joanna-Well, they sell coffee right there.

Mom-And boy do I need one.

Old Man-Perhaps you misunderstand me. I would like a cup of coffee.

Mom-Yes, and you can buy it right there.

Old Man-Again, I suppose I am not making myself quite clear. I want a cup of coffee.

Mom-Please, much like my marriage, this seems to be going nowhere.

Old Man-My money is all tied up in assets right now. I could write you a check.

Mom-A check?

Old Man-Of course.

Mom-A check for what?

Old Man-You see, I have invested in oil fields and copper mines and (beat)aluminum trees. Why I remember when I first started out in this world with a nickle in my back pocket. Do you know what a nickle is young lad?

Mom-I don't allow her to have money. I buy her anything that she wants.

Joanna-You will buy me anything that I want?

Mom-Well, no, that was an unfortunate figure of speech. Its just that you're young and aren't old enough to appreciate what you truly want. You have the desires of a child.

Joanna-That's because I am a child.

Mom-Because you are a child. So well put. So succinctly put. And a child's mind is full of; I want this and I want that. We must temper our wants with experience, experience which you don't yet have my dear.

Old Man-Fascinating, but as I was saying about my oil fields.

Mom-Excuse me, are you still here?

Double Double-Hospital in Trouble is an ensemble piece. There are no stars. It; like most of the plays we offer, promote team effort.
