About the Show
Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1992
In an effort to get medical help for the sharecroppers in rural Alabama, Nurse Evers convinces the local men to join a government study to treat venereal disease. Four of the men, who have formed an amateur song-and-dance group, compete in "gillie" competitions. They are the focus of Nurse Evers care. When money for treatment runs out, Nurse Evers is faced with a difficult decision: to tell the men they are no longer being treated and are now part of a research study, or follow the lead of the doctors she respects and the tenets of the nursing profession. 

All the characters except for Dr. Douglas are African American.
