Visit 'The Good Doctor' at Greenwich Library

TheGoodDoctor.jpgM&M Productions will present Neil Simon's The Good Doctor on October 17, at 2 pm, in the Cole Auditorium at Greenwich Library. This play is Neil Simon's tribute to Anton Chekhov, the most successful Russian playwright of his time.

The play consists of adaptations of some of Chekhov's short stories with the common thread of a character called the "Writer" tying each together. A working-class man sneezes on the back of his rich boss's head at the opera and can't stop apologizing. A Casanova sets his amorous sights on a friend's wife. Frightened governesses, eager dental students and bankers with gout are all fodder for Simon and Chekhov.

Janice and Stewart Hanges, Peter Lillo, Kevin Vislocky and Jean Kadela form a versatile cast that brings these vignettes to life in a briskly paced collection of mirth and tears. The play is directed by Ray Eckerle.

M&M Productions is in its 10th season of providing live theatre to small venues, such as libraries and schools. They have brought plays to Greenwich Library for several years, including Five Women Wearing the Same Dress and Bloody Murder, which were performed last year.

The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, please call Alice Bonvenuto at 203-622-7919.
