synopsis The play is set in the near future. Organ transplants have become commonplace. After a car crash at an international rally, a driver has a number of organs transplanted into his body from the corpse of his brother who was killed in the accident. The insurance company, however, refuses to pay death benefits against the dead brother’s life insurance policy because they contend that much of the corpse is not dead.
