SUMMARY

This extrordinary work, ‘The Good Doctor’ by the famous New Yorker immediately displays not only his much celebrated and proven wit but his utter reverence for the brilliant Russian, Anton Chekhov.

Chekhov wrote over 50 stories in a fifteen year period from 1888 through which time he tried to provide for his adored mother and put himself through medical college, both of which he achieved.

Alongside his short plays they became his chief claim to world pre-eminence and his main testimony as writer.

Neil Simon is obviously as much of a Chekhophile as is Theatre Alba. Simon takes 10 short stories by his hero, and dramatises them in the inimitable style that has become Simon’s own.

There is definitely no better way to introduce Checkhov than through this hysterical yet poignant play…
