Health care reform receives a fresh—and bawdy—treatment in Christopher Bayes’ and Steven Epp’s adaptation of A Doctor in Spite of Himself.  Like a puppet play come to life, this full-bodied farce relates the improbable adventures of a woodcutter who is mistaken for a miracle doctor.  (Note: adult themes and subject matter). 


A Doctor in Spite of Himself is produced by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing, Inc, NYC.
