Joe 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. Join us for refreshments, a viewing of the play, and a panel discussion with the playwright, UCMC health practitioners and members of the community concerned about our health care system.
