The Good Doctor is a comedy by Neil Simon. It consists of a series of short plays, based on short stories and other works by writer Anton Chekhov, framed by a writer making comments on them.
The Writer (obviously Chekhov) suffers from writer's block and
his own artistic temperament as he narrates several of his stories:
There are 26 characters (although the Narrator plays
some of these). The cast is flexible and can be played anywhere between 13m, 9F
and 6m, 5f.
American playwright Neil Simon is widely regarded as one of the most successful, prolific and performed playwrights in theatre history. This a delightfully funny play with plenty of scope and opportunity to develop characterisation and comedic skills. Anton Chekhov and Neil Simon’s comic fantasy is irresistible.
This was first performed 50 years ago on
