Bill W. and Dr. Bob by Samuel Shem & Janet Surrey!
“Bill W. and Dr. Bob” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Spotlight Playhouse is proud to present Bill W. and Dr. Bob, an inspiring and often humorous story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, and their supportive wives, who founded Al-Anon. In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hope-less 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, the two men are brought together and, realizing that “the only thing that can keep a drunk sober is telling his story to an-other drunk,” forge a relationship. They help each other stay sober, and then pass on what they’ve learned to others.
Show dates are June 2, 3, 9 and 10 at 8:00 PM and June 3 and 9 at 2:00 PM at Pike School in Andover MA 01810
