HFC’s ‘The Good Doctor’ runs next two weekends

DEARBORN – The Henry Ford College Division of Social Science, Arts & Fitness brings “The Good Doctor” – the hit Broadway play that combines the talents of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov – to the stage for the next two weekends at the MacKenzie Fine Arts Center on the main campus, 5101 Evergreen.

“The Good Doctor,” directed by HFC theater instructor Mary F. Bremer-Beer, will hit the stage at 8 p.m. Aug. 7, 8 and 15, and 2 p.m. Aug. 9, 16 and 17.

“The Good Doctor” is renowned, award-winning playwright Simon’s tribute to Chekhov, considered one of the greatest writers in Russian history. The play is broken up into a number of different comedy sketches adapted from Chekhov’s short stories. The common thread throughout the sketches is the character known only as the Writer (who is supposed to be Chekhov).

Tickets are $12 for the general public, $10 for senior citizens and HFC employees, and $8 for students with valid student identification. tickets are available at http://theatre.hfcc.edu.
