A heart has suddenly become available for transplant ... and the members of St. Patricks Hospital's Heart Transplant Selection Committee have only a matter of minutes to decide which of three patients will receive it. With hints of Twelve Angry Men, ER and Grey's Anatomy, The God Committee provides a dramatic but also amusing glimpse into the machinations of a transplant program, as seven professionals -- three doctors, a social worker, a psychiatrist, a nurse and a priest -- encounter a conflict of emotions, ethics and responsibilities as they try to select who will live ... and who will die.

Super fun story, very nice play, was a pleasure to see it and really enjoy it! The theater was small ,but very cute one, in intermission time , there was an easter play with eggs, delicious cookie and soda! Can't be more perfect to spend Sunday afternoon!
