The brain of a famous alcoholic/diabetic artist with a deteriorating body is transplanted into the vegetative body of a pro-golfer. When the Patient wakens from his surgery, he must not only figure out how to eat, talk, walk, and paint again, but he must navigate through a deluge of memories that no longer feel like they happened to him.

Press Quotes

“A fantastic dramatic vehicle — one that poses complex questions about the relationship between mind and body, the nature of love and death, the source of artistic talent, the roots of identity, and some of the thornier ethical and social issues raised by increasingly radical medical ‘breakthroughs.’ This is a play that is smart and probing and revelatory.” —Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

“A fascinating piece of Chicago writing.” —Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

“ECHOES OF ANOTHER MAN is one of those plays with a premise that excites and engages our imagination completely.” —Rick Reed, Windy City Times
