The Dialysis Project is the first-person story of agency and resilience.

The Dialysis Project is a one-woman play about the experience of a home dialysis patient administering her own medical treatments every other day. The play explores what it’s like to live with a lifelong chronic condition requiring regular medical procedures for survival, and touches on themes of identity and resilience.
