News   Deadline Critic Will Help Rebecca Luker and Christian Campbell Explore The Doctor's Dilemma
 
Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw, under the leadership of artistic director David Staller, will continue Oct. 19 at 7 PM with a reading of The Doctor’s Dilemma at Symphony Space’s Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2895 Broadway at 95th St.) in New York.

The cast will include Michael McCorry Rose (Redpenny), Nora Chester (Emmy), Michael Cumpsty (Sir Colenso Ridgeon), Ames Adamson (Sir Patrick Cullen), Simon Jones (Sir Bloomfield Bonington), Marc Vietor (Cutler Walpole), Tim Jerome (Leo Schutzmacher), Dan Daily (Dr. Blenkensop), Rebecca Luker (Jennifer Dubedat), Christian Campbell (Louis Dubedat), Blair Busbee (Minnie Tinwell) and Chris Ryan (Mr. Danby).

Deadline theatre critic Jeremy Gerard will be the Narrator and The Newspaper Man.

In a statement director Staller said, “This particularly provocative comedy takes on the entire medical profession along with the importance of a National Health plan, while examining the value of science versus art—and remains as maddeningly relevant today as it did when it first appeared in 1906.”

"A question of medical ethics is central to The Doctor’s Dilemma," according to press notes. "Dr. Colenso Ridgeon (Michael Cumpsty) must choose between saving Louis Dubedat (Christian Campbell)—a talented and charming artist who has borrowed money with no intention of repayment and has deceived his devoted wife Jennifer (Rebecca Luker—and helping a poverty-stricken doctor who treats indigent patients. The dilemma is further complicated when the doctor realizes he may have fallen in love with Jennifer."

Tickets are $30 and are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at www.symphonyspace.org. *

Now celebrating its 10th year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw's 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches).
