About this show

Conceived, Written, & Produced by Axis Company Axis Company's episodic play Hospital (a West Village phenomenon every year) examines the interior life of a man in a terminal coma. Entering this state in a different way every year, the audience travels with him as he lives out his last few days roaming the vast, dark interiors of his own brain. This year a complicated mystery unfolds to reveal the possible intentions of a manipulative, drug addicted thief. Hospital 2006 asks this question: What is an accident? Although Hospital is a serial, each evening can be viewed separately as a self-contained, short play. Through the careful utilization of various media AXIS has produced an eclectic series of original and published plays with highly advanced, state of the art technological components that enhance the internal meaning of the material. Past productions include Buchner's Woyzeck, Beckett's Play, Benjamin Baker's 1848 sensation A Glance at New York and the U.S. premiere of Sarah Kane's Crave, starring Deborah Harry. Episode ONE: September 29, 30; October 6, 7 Episode TWO: October 13, 14, 20, 21 Episode THREE: October 26, 27; November 3, 4 (Note: The first weekend of Episode Three is Thursday/Friday performances.)
