GenreOne-Act Play

In my short play, "A Church and a Hospital," the healthcare discrepancy caused by religion is investigated. Many treatment options are disregarded because of
religious beliefs, especially in minorities, but it can be a very dangerous gamble. As we follow John, a characternot too unlike many other patients, we have to realize
how faith can be used for strength, but not always for healing.
