Join us for a performance of Bill W. and Dr. Bob on Tuesday, August 20th at 7PM at the Soho Playhouse, at 15 Van Dam St between Varick and Sixth Ave.  The play will be followed by a private talk-back with the author and producer Stephen Bergman (pen-name Sam Shem, physician & author of House of God, Mount Misery, Spirit of the Place). Tickets are $10 residents, $29 faculty/staff/friends.  Synopsis:  In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for thirty years, often going into the operating room with a hangover. Through an astonishing series of events, Bill W. and Dr. Bob meet and form a relationship, each helping to keep the other sober. This 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.
