It’s the nature of Combat Theatre that most of the pieces are comedic.  The writers are given a ridiculous pairing of a subject and location and the jokes tend to follow.  But every now and again one of our writers is inspired to write a drama, and that’s just what Michelle Hoff man did when she drew the pairing of Sleep Disorders on a Soap Opera.

Little Billy needs a septum transplant to save his life and there’s only one institution that performs such a delicate procedure and that institution is Desperate Hope Hospital.  And there’s only one surgeon with the hands capable of performing such a feat and that surgeon is Dr. Brock Stronghand.  And there’s only one actor capable of playing such a role, but we’re going to let Jarecki play it again anyway.

Watch as Brock, Dr. Haley McShane and Nurse Celeste race against the clock to save Little Billy’s life, and keep Doug from taking his clothes off.  It’s “Desperately Seeking Septums” and you only have one chance to see an encore of this play originally produced in June of 2007.

It’s “The Best of Combat Theatre…so far!”
