KEENE, NH- Monadnock Waldorf High School invites the public to attend the senior class play, “The Good Doctor,” by Neil Simon. The play will be presented on Thursday, May 15, Friday, May 16, and Saturday, May 17, at Heberton Hall, 60 Winter Street. Curtain time is 7 pm.

“The Good Doctor” is based on the stories of Anton Chekhov. In the play, a beleaguered writer, representing Chekhov, creates a series of nine short stories, through which he takes the audience on a journey through human eccentricities and frailties.

Each of the stories takes on a life of its own, in turn, full of laughter and pathos. And each reflects different human needs, wants or emotions—droll at times, tearful between giggles and explosive laughter.

Together the stories create a whole picture that affirms the human condition.

This play contains some mature themes, so parents may wish to consider this when bringing younger children.

Tickets for the play are available at the door: $7 per adult and $5 per student. Proceeds will benefit the Class of 2014 upcoming service trip to “Almost Heaven,” a Habitat for Humanity project in West Virginia.
