THE GOOD DOCTOR
August 11 - 27, 2017
By Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov
The Good Doctor is presented through special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Directed by Kory Weimer
The Good Doctor blends the talents of two widely respected writers from different countries and centuries. American playwright Neil Simon dramatizes several short stories by Russian author Anton Chekhov in this amusing concoction, first produced on Broadway in 1973. The play consists of a series of sketches, narrated by a character called The Writer, who introduces the stories, comments on them, and occasionally plays a role in them. In one sketch a neurotic government clerk sneezes on a General during an opera performance, with spectacularly unfortunate results. In another, a crafty seducer sets his sights on a wedded woman, with the unwitting aid of her husband. Let us not forget the ridiculous tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. Animated by Simon’s rapid-fire one-liners and witty dialogue, the nine sketches illuminate Chekhov’s take on the human condition through stories that are droll, outlandish, and fun.
