Mainly aimed at my USA readers, anyone living near to the Arden Theatre in Philadelphia, PA then this is for you.

Playwright Michael Hollinger has produced a play on the comic aspects of a kidney transplant.

Sometimes it takes comedy to get the message across. Now, of course I have not seen this production but am assuming it will be well received and word will spread.

Now we just need someone in the UK to produce a similar play for the West End and to travel around 🙂 …….

If anyone gets to see this play, would love you to report back on your views and whether it has had any positive impact re kidney transplant/donation etc.

Under the Skin, which will begin previews Thursday and run through March 15 at the Arden Theatre, Philadelphia (USA) –  is the result of Hollinger’s deep dive into the world of organ donation – a months-long process of interviewing local donors and recipients and examining the fraught interactions that arise when a person is asked to hand over a chunk of her own precious tissue.

Come on! Any UK playwrights out there want to do something similar over here? …. don’t be shy 🙂
