Anatomy of Gray Presented by Michigan Tech Theatre

7:30 p.m. November 14-17, 2023

At the McArdle Theatre

When her father dies, a girl from the small Indiana town of Gray prays for a healer so that no one will ever suffer again. The next thing she knows, a man claiming to be a doctor blows into town in a hot air balloon. But can this “doctor” keep illness at bay? Michigan Tech Theatre invites you on an extraordinary journey through the murky waters of love, loss, and healing in the 19th century with Anatomy of Gray, written by Jim Leonard Jr. and directed by Patricia Helsel.
