Counting Pebbles

Sponsored by: Yale Cabaret

After responding to a fatal overdose of one of their own, rural EMTs question the repetitive trauma and stress of their work. Based on EMS provider stories gathered across the U.S. from 2016-2018, this project grapples with the unique challenges faced by emergency medical responders.

Created by a team of EMTs, WFRs, healthcare providers, theater artists, writers, musicians and disaster responders in partnership with the Code Green Campaign, this play tells stories of responders struggling with trauma, burnout, and the aftermath of a coworker’s death. While the characters are fictional, parts of their experiences are based in true stories from across the country.
