Created from verbatim accounts of the early days in the COVID-19 pandemic, AN ENDLESS SHIFT is a tribute to the everyday heroes who were confronted with what would become the longest shift of their lives. The play combines storytelling and documentary theatre to give five healthcare professionals from around the United States a platform to share their wisdom as those who cared for their communities in one of the most vulnerable moments in human history. At a time when the division of our nation was at an all time high, these people fulfilled their vows to care for ALL. How did they do that? How did they survive? These are the questions AN ENDLESS SHIFT seeks to answer. Seattle theater artist Gloria Alcalá, in a solo tour de force performance, embodies the multitude of perspectives on this harrowing journey of challenge, hope, and deep recognition of our common humanity, told in the firsthand words of the humans who were there.
