Bill W. and Dr. Bob  (5551)

07/08/2013 8:00 PM - 01/05/2014 5:00 PM

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. Bill W. and Dr. Bob is being presented by The Hazelden Foundation through tax-exempt donations. There are no investors. All net proceeds go to support a college tour of the play to address the epidemic of binge drinking on campus, and to patient aid
and educational resources for youth andyoung adults.
