Playing Doctor -- a zany farce about a struggling writer/college drop-out who never quite became the doctor his uppity parents believe him to be... A Wonderful... wacky comedy...
Rob Brewster’s parents are very, very proud of their son the doctor. What they don’t know is that Rob has used all the money they gave him for medical school to live on as he has pursued his fledgling writing career. Inevitably, Rob’s day of reckoning comes when his parents arrive for a visit. Quickly, he enlists the help of his secretary to be his nurse, and his roommate Jimmy, to round up his actor friends to pretend to be patients.
Complications ensue when Jimmy decides he is such a good actor that he can impersonate all the patients, with the help of a trunk of costumes and bad dialects! The authors have written some zany farces but this one may just be their zaniest.
Playing doctor is on stage at UHCL’s Bayou Theater March 23rd – March 26th with 8:00PM performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday plus matinees on Saturday and Sunday matinee 2:00PM.
