ShawChicago returns to the Studio Theater with a staged reading of Bernard Shaw's tale of Doctor Colenso Ridgeon. The newly knighted doctor has discovered a cure for tuberculosis but has only one slot left for the clinical trial. Should he choose a kindly medical colleague who ministers to the poor or a callous, amoral, but potentially great artist? And will his love for the artist's wife interfere with his decision? The Doctor's Dilemma is a fascinating tug-of-war between art and science...and love, as only Shaw could tell it.
Please note post-show discussions will follow the Saturday 04/24/2010 and Sunday 05/02/2010 performances.
