Title: Under the Knife, Under the Gun
Author: Baker, Brandy
Department: School of English and Theatre Studies

Advisor: Thompson, Judith
Abstract: This thesis is an investigation of the current healthcare system in the United States and the past system of healthcare in Canada before 1963, when the province of Saskatchewan started a single payer system of healthcare. The results of my research are written in the form of a play. Not only are there comparisons between the present U.S. system and past Canadian system of healthcare delivery, Under the Knife, Under the Gun focuses on the personal conflicts between the American family that is featured in the play as well as the systemic conflicts that arise in surviving in a capitalist system that thrives on the labour of a very large economic underclass.
