About The Show
Justin Marks, M.D. has one night to save his career. Justin is a new intern whose life’s dream is to become an ER doctor and save lives. Despite excelling in the classroom, Justin struggled in his medical school rotations due to his inability to relate to his patients. His focus on science and research, and his dependence on his ipad led to his being left off every hospital’s want list and failing to land a spot in a residency program. Now, he must fight for his career, as he is forced to compete with his med school nemesis Kyle for the one Emergency Medicine spot left in the country. Both candidates have been asked to work one overnight shift to allow the program director, Dr. Sharp, to choose between the two. Emergency is a modern-day American musical that follows Dr. Marks through this 12-hour shift and allows the audience to experience the laughs, love, happiness, and tears that a night in the ER can bring. He is mentored by Dr. Hill, the seasoned leader of the ER, and is antagonized by the charge nurse Carla, who has lost her compassion and also happens to be Kyle’s aunt. Despite the mentorship by Dr. Hill, Justin finds himself struggling with the same problems that plagued him in medical school.
