Come get a checkup with Chekhov! The Hyde Park Community Players are proud to announce their production of The Good Doctor, an adaptation by Neil Simon of several Anton Chekhov short stories. Ranging from men seducing married women, to finding love in old age, to dealing with downright pushy people, all of the stories are light-hearted and funny, yet with hints of gravity—a combination for which Chekhov is well-known. Set in 19th century Russia, the play offers doses of human folly that people from anywhere and any time can take to feel better.
The Good Doctor will be playing at the Experimental Station, 6100 S. Blackstone in Hyde Park from April 12th-14th. Show times are 8:00 pm on Friday, April 12th (with a food reception to follow), 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Saturday, April 13th and 3:00 pm on Sunday, April 14th.
Tickets are $10 in advance available online at www.hydeparkcommunityplayers.org or $12 at the door.
