Bill W. And Dr. Bob
A story of unlikely friendship celebrating the founders of AA
Set in 1929 Manhattan, Bill Wilson is a stockbroker whose life plummets along with the market crash. Down on his luck, Wilson turns to booze to solve his problems. As luck would have it, Wilson crosses paths with Dr. Bob Smith, an equally drunkard surgeon from Ohio. Who knew these unlikely friends would be the fellows that went on to start Alcoholics Anonymous? This play’s a true treat – an uplifting and funny biographical narrative. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Over 18s only.
"Sharp performances, Seth Gordon’s solid direction and a purpose-driven script (that never forgets the humor of the human experience) make this a satisfying revival."
