Shavian Healthcare Reform
Shaw returns to our Hill at his most radically entertaining. This particular gem takes aim at medical breakthrough and the power it wields - as both healing tool and bargaining chip. Dr. Ridgeon's dilemma is two-fold: when there's not enough medicine to go around, what makes a patient cure-worthy? And can a doctor remain impartial when he's fallen in love with that patient's wife? With Shaw, the ethical sands are always shifting, and your favorite players are the most likely to fall prey to their own vanities. Side-splitting banter between charming (and not-so-charming) characters accessorizes spot-on social commentary.
Dr. Ridgeon has developed a cure for tuberculosis. He’s at the very top of his game – and his patient load – when the charming Jennifer Dubedat comes to him pleading for the life of her husband, the talent-rich (and penny-poor) artist, Louis. But the good doctor and his friends find that, talented though he may be, Louis may have some character traits that could be deemed irredeemable when one life is weighed against another, and against Dr. Ridgeon’s feelings for the dying man’s wife.
