Powell Chemical Dependency Center at Iowa Lutheran Hospital and StageWest Theatre are excited to bring the play Bill W. and Dr. Bob to Des Moines and central Iowa. Bill W. and Dr. Bob will make its debut in Iowa September 17 and run through September 26.
In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for thirty years, often going into the operating room with a hangover. Through an astonishing series of events, Bill W. and Dr. Bob meet and form a relationship, each helping to keep the other sober. This is the amazing and often humorous story of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as the story of their wives, who founded Al Anon.
