Drifting – a Play about PVS [EOL in Art 182]

Bill Doan’s play “Drifting” follows the relationship of a brother and sister, who is in a vegetative state after a traumatic brain injury. 

The play travels from the sister’s hospital room to inside the minds of each character. The play confronts the ethical challenges surrounding prolonging the sister’s life and the difficult decision the brother and the family have to make.
