Doctor In The House


Ted Willis, from the book by Richard Gordon

Directed by: Eric Peel

19th - 22nd Februrary 1964

Adapted from the novel by Richard Gordon about the off duty lives of a group of medical students, this play weaves their happy triumphs and brave failures, love affairs and parties into a many colored pattern. Several individuals confined under the same roof employ a blithe exterior to hide their hopes and fears, ineffectually concealing an underlying earnestness of purpose.
