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, the two men are brought together and, realizing that "the only thing that can keep a drunk sober is telling his story to another drunk," forge a relationship. They help each other stay sober, and then pass on what they've learned to others. The award-winning play, Bill W. and Dr. Bob, is the inspiring and often humorous story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, and their supportive wives, who founded Al Anon. Directed by Sue Decker. Bill W. and Dr. Bob is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH INC.
