Code Blue

Two men, caught in the chaos of contemporary America. One man, working inside a hospital during the COVID pandemic, comes to grasp the volatility of what it means to be “essential.” The other frantically parrots President Trump’s rhetoric.

This powerful short digital production, directed by Wilma Artistic Director Blanka Zizka, takes its inspiration from absurdist theater (such as Beckett’s Not I), and the Wilma HotHouse Company’s bold physical performance style.

Its title, Code Blue, refers to the hospital code indicating an emergency when a patient enters cardiac arrest.
