Mercy Killers is being performed as a benefit for Health Care for All Oregon. The Mission of HCAO is to work for an affordable, comprehensive, publicly funded, high quality universal health care system serving everyone in Oregon. Mercy Killers is a recipient of The Scotsman Fringe First Award at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world. Mercy Killers is in the tradition of American Playwrights from Arthur Miller and Clifford Odets, to Tony Kutchner and Anna Deavere Smith in capturing political and social reality in powerful story and unforgettable character. Joe is a blue-collar mechanic with a red state perspective. A staunch believer in the American way of life, he prizes hard work, self reliance and personal liberty. He is deeply in love with his wife and even enjoys their "nuclear" arguments on the dangers of too much Rush Limbaugh and not enough organic foods. Everything changes when she is diagnosed with cancer. Mercy Killers is an emotional journey of a man who fights for his wife's life using every resource, personal and otherwise, he can muster. Caught in a life and death struggle with the health care system, Joe finds the bedrock of his life, marriage and self-identity shifting under him. General Admission tickets are available for $15 through or $20 at the door
