The Good Doctor 29th Mar - 1st Apr 2023
Following its sell out run of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, Sandyford Little Theatre returns to the Mill Studio with ‘The Good Doctor’ by Neil Simon.
The Good Doctor is a sparkling comedy that is by turns, charming, hilarious, sad, and touching. Based on the short stories of Chekhov, it centres around a writer, who speaks to the audience and shares his writing with them, throughout one day.
In one sketch, a feisty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. And let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles.
Classic Neil Simon humour where the stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the laughter infectious, and the fun unending.
Total running time including interval: 1 hour 45 minutes
