George Bernard Shaw’s The Doctor’s Dilemma
A Staged Reading & Discussion on Medical Ethics

DoctorsDilemmaGeorge Bernard Shaw’s long life (1856-1950) coincided with an eventful chapter in the history of medicine, beginning with the creation of the modern British medical profession through The Medicine Act of 1858 and ending with its socialization through the National Health Act of 1946. Shaw’s play is a dramatization of the comic and near-tragic aspects of medical theory and practice during that time.
