This Fall: The Doctor's Dilemma by Bernard Shaw

Posted by Damaso Rodriguez on Thursday, June 21, 2012 Under: Theatre
Excited to be returning for my 4th production at A Noise Within.  This more 'unknown' Shaw work ought to be well-known. It was hugely popular in the first half of the 20th century.  Its core premise is genius, and the play is very funny while creating a platform for discussion about the "doctor's" power to play God, the "artist's" quest for immortality and the consequences of living without regard others. 

The Doctor's Dilemma

By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Damaso Rodriguez

Oct 13 - Nov 25, 2012

Who to save: a kindly colleague who serves the poor, or an extremely talented but unscrupulous young artist?  Shaw's incisive comedy is an indictment of both the medical profession and the artistic sensibility.

"I've had to consider not only whether a man could be saved, but whether he was worth saving." - Dr. Ridgeon
