About the play
A group of storytellers gathers to chronicle a curious tale.
It's 1822. A fur trader named Alexis St. Martin gets shot (by accident) and is left with a gaping wound in his chest, leading directly to his stomach. His doctor, William Beaumont, uses him and his wound to conduct studies on digestion for the next 11 years.
And yes, this really happened.
