Northborough – Neil Simon's “The Good Doctor,” directed by Tom Alera, will be performed Thursday, May 17 through Saturday, May at Algonquin Regional High School. The performances start at 7 p.m. in the high school's Small Performance Theatre. The cast includes Zach Lusk, Alex LaFreniere, Brittany Price, Max Ludwig, Sarah Gittens, and Andy Hamilton.
Neil Simon molds the stories of Russian writer Anton Chekhov into exquisitely timed, often hilarious theatre, dramatizing seven stories which incorporate a wide variety of characters: a governess, a lady of the night, a blustering general, a wild woman with a nervous disorder, a roué flirting with a new bride, a man who earns money by “drowning,” and an actress. The stories, adapted for the stage, are filled with dry humor, surprise endings, and clever common people in confrontations with “superiors,” ending in absurdities.
General admission is $7, or buy a ticket and three raffle tickets for $10. The tickets will be sold at the door, but because the Small Performance Theater has a limited number of seats, reservations are encouraged by emailing [email protected]. Algonquin Regional High School is located at 79 Bartlett St. in Northborough.
