Bill W. and Dr. Bob

$20- $99

Bill W. and Dr. Bob is an expertly told, universally compelling story about the triumph of the human spirit. Patrick Boll (Mamma Mia, Faith Healer, Twentieth Century) will star as Bill Wilson, a famous New York stockbroker who, in 1929, crashes with the stock market, becoming a miserable drunk. Returning to the role he performed to acclaim at the Cleveland Playhouse, Timothy Crowe (resident acting member of Trinity Repertory Company) will play Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon in Akron who has been an alcoholic for thirty years and often goes into the operating room with a hangover. Both are isolated, alone, and on the brink of death. Through an astonishing series of events, the two men are brought together and, realizing that "the only thing that can keep a drunk sober is telling his story to another drunk," forge a relationship. They help each other stay sober, and then pass on what they've learned to others.
