The Doctor’s Dilemma
A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classical repertory theatre company, continues its 2012-13 season in its state-of-the-art Pasadenahome with The Doctor’s Dilemma, a rarely performed comic and incisive indictment of both the medical profession and the artistic sensibility by George Bernard Shaw, directed by Dámaso Rodriguez.
A compelling and profoundly engaging fusion of comedy, tragedy, and romance that defies categorization, The Doctor’s Dilemma, set in 1906, focuses on Sir Colenso Ridgeon, a fashionable and egotistical surgeon who has discovered a new TB inoculation and must decide who should be saved: a kindly colleague who serves the poor or an extremely talented but unscrupulous young artist with a beautiful and alluring young wife whom the doctor allows to cloud his moral judgment.
Single tickets currently range from $40–$52. “Pay What You Can” tickets for the Thursday, Oct. 18 performance, which allow patrons to pay what they can afford, are sold at the box office the day of the performance for cash only on a first-come, first-serve basis based on availability, with a limit of two per person.
