FREE EVENT. NON TICKETED. SOUTHERN ILLINOIS PEOPLE FOR PROGRESS and THE ILLINOIS SINGLE PAYER COALITION PRESENT "Mercy Killers". A one man play written and acted by Michael Milligan. Joe loves apple pie, Rush Limbaugh, the 4th of July and his wife, Jane. He is blue-collar, corn-fed, made in the USA and proud, but when his uninsured wife is diagnosed with cancer, his patriotic feelings and passion for the ethos of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are turned upside down. In "Mercy Killers", Joe struggles with the uniquely American experience of losing your health in the land of plenty.
