Problems with America's health care system regularly dominate headlines, with stories of inefficient care and unfair policies. Solo performer Anna Deavere Smith wants to get people talking about health care and medicine in her new play, "Let Me Down Easy." It opens tonight at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

Smith is known for her film and television work, and a series of documentary plays on the theme "A Search for American Values." As she tells host Cy Musiker, for this show she interviewed hundreds of people about their medical experience.
