The Long Center presents Bill W. and Doctor Bob, February 2-7 in the Rollins Studio Theatre.
In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for thirty years, often going into the operating room with a hangover. Through an astonishing series of events, Bill W. and Dr. Bob meet and form a relationship, each helping to keep the other sober. This is the amazing and often humorous story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as the story of their wives, who founded Al Anon.
The vision of this production is to celebrate the power of recovery, educate people about the disease of alcoholism through breaking down barriers and stigmas, and support outreach to all who still suffer and their friends and loved ones.
As many reviews have said: ‘This play is not just for AA, it’s a play for everyone.
*Please note that Thursday, February 4th’s performance will be performed in Spanish.
