        Bill W and Dr Bob

Bill W and Dr Bob

about Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, two hopeless drunks whose sometimes stormy friendship, buffeted by their strong desire to recover from their chronic alcoholism, led to the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous. the play tells the story of how Wilson, a failed stockbroker, and Smith, a surgeon, met in 1935. Diagnosed as an incurable alcoholic, Wilson determined that what he needed most was fellowship with other alcoholics after previous attempts at recovery failed him. When Wilson's desire to drink overwhelmed him during a trip to Akron, Ohio, he picked out the name of a clergyman at random and asked if he could give him the name of a local alcoholic to talk to. That search led him to Dr. Bob Smith, a respected surgeon who frequently operated while inebriated. the stockbroker and the surgeon first met in the living room of Akron matron Henrietta Sieberling
