Broadway’s master of comedy, Neil Simon, creates a series of memorable sketches inspired from a selection of short stories by the 19th century Russian writer and doctor Anton Chekhov.

In one sketch a feisty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a doctor’s new assistant is left to perform a bungling tooth extraction on a sexton. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a married woman, only to realize that she has been in command from the first overture. In a touching musical duet an elderly man and woman sing about whether it’s too late for them to find happiness. And, let’s not forget the hilarious tale about a man who offers to put on a show by drowning himself for three rubles! The stories are droll, the humour infectious and the fun unending.

Presented by the Connaught’s associate theatre company who brought you Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play and The Importance of Being Oscar, The Good Doctor features five actors performing the sketches with live music provided by theatre organist Michael Wooldridge. Directed by Ross Muir and designed by Laura Kimber.
