A wonderful copy of Bernard Shaw’s The Doctor’s Dilemma. In this problem play, Shaw satirises the private medical profession and the conflicts of interest that can arise. Sir Colenso Ridgeon has developed a new cure for tuberculosis, however his private medical practice is small with limited resources and staff. While he is treating a limited number of patients, he is approached by the young Mrs Dubedat who asks him to cure her husband. However, when a long-time colleague and old friend also needs treatment, Sir Ridgeon must make a choice. Does he save the talented but incredibly unpleasant husband of the woman he has just fallen for, or his poor and selfless friend? The play is prefaced with a lengthy essay by Shaw on the medical profession and the inclination towards private interest over public good.
