Whose Life is It Anyway?

Ken Harrison, a successful sculptor, is paralysed in a car accident and kept alive by support systems in a hospital. As the play begins, he is coming to the decision that if he can’t live as a man, he does not want to exist as a medical achievement. His physician, however, is utterly determined to preserve Ken’s life, regardless of its quality. Finally, despite the pleas of the doctor and his involved nurse, Ken invokes the law of habeas corpus and a judge joins the battle to determine his fate.
