I read this play in my Literature class not too long ago but cannot remember the name, nor find any clue of it on the internet. It's rather short -- we got through the majority of it in the hour lesson -- and only had a small handful of characters. If I remember remember correctly each scene had only two characters. The idea of the play was some kind of surgery but I cannot recall precisely what it was (euthanasia is what comes to mind but I wouldn't rely on that). There was some level of showing the "patient" the medical instruments and I think both the patient and the operator (or maybe it was just a receptionist or clerk or something) were female, but on account of my being the only male in the class I can't be sure that the characters were female.
There was some degree of coldness by the operator/receptionist. It was encouraged that they do not make a connection with the patient but the two end up talking anyway.
I almost want to say the patient was a journalist of some kind. Almost, so (s)he may not have been. I'm sure (s)he knew quite a bit about the procedure though.
There was a lengthy section where the C-word reigned supreme, literally in the form of declaring the person (s)he's talking to is one, (s)he themselves is one, everyone is one and the whole world is full of them.
It was set in a dystopian world and was most definitely a play rather than a novel.
Does anyone recognise this play?
