Soap alumna Rachel Kimsey (Mackenzie Browning on “The Young and The Restless”) will play Alice in the life-or-death drama Who Lives? at the Pico Playhouse in Los Angeles, March 12-29, 2009.
The play, written by Christopher Meeks and sponsored by the non-profit Renal Support Network, is based on the 1960’s anonymous citizens committee who determined the life-or-death fate of kidney patients applying for experimental dialysis.
Kimsey’s character is a college student and anonymous committee member struggling to comprehend the system of determining who lives, and who dies, in order to save lives. What she uncovers in the process is an imperfect system riddled with decision-making challenges that are relatable in not just healthcare and bioethics, but in all aspects of modern society.
Who Lives? will be directed by Joe Ochman and Produced by Brett Fisher during National Kidney Month. For complete information, go to www.wholivesplay.com.
