BILL W. AND DR. BOB to Return to Theatre 68 Arts Complex This Month

Ronnie Marmo and Theatre 68 will present the return of critically acclaimed BILL W. AND DR. BOB after a seven-year absence. This is the gripping, true story about the two men who founded Alcoholics Anonymous, written by Stephen Bergman and Janet Surrey. The production is double-cast and once again, directed by Ronnie Marmo. Opening February 17th at the new THEATRE 68 ARTS COMPLEX - The Beckett.

ABOUT THE SHOW

In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes along with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for 30 years, often going into the operating room with a hangover.

Through an astonishing series of events, Bill and Bob meet and form a relationship, each helping the other to stay sober. BILL W. AND DR. BOB is the amazing and often humorous story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as the story of their wives who founded Al-Anon.

The play artfully illustrates Bill and Bob's journey from the pain and isolation of alcoholism to the hope and inspiration they find in sobriety and helping others. The play originally opened Off-Broadway at the New World Stages to outstanding critical acclaim.
