10 Minute play, 1 man, 2 women (a young African-American woman, an older Caucasian woman and a retirement-age Caucasian man), and very simple set needs.
A Southern ob/gyn, Doc Finn, celebrates his last day of work with his loyal secretary, Gladiola. Their practice covers a very poor part of Dansville. His last patient, 17-year-old Tandeka Page, arrives for her appointment, and has a simple question for him: "Why did my baby die?" Helping Tandeka arrive at a satisfactory answer takes all of Doc Finn’s skill. After she leaves, Doc Finn pronounces a judgement on his forty years of practice.
