The founding of Alcoholics Anonymous touches everyone—whether familiar with the disease of addiction or not. The experience of the cofounders and their wives speaks to the universal experience of human suffering and the spiritual growth that comes from finding a way through. The play Bill W. and Dr. Bob, cowritten by Steve Bergman and Janet Surrey, touches audiences with its message that people can indeed change their destiny. Special guest Steve Bergman shares what has happened since Bill W. and Dr. Bob debuted off Broadway in 2007. It is currently on an international bilingual—English and Spanish—tour. Steve Bergman is a novelist, essayist, playwright, and activist. A graduate of Harvard College and Medical School, and Oxford as a Rhodes scholar, he was on the Harvard faculty for 35 years. A world-renowned speaker, Steve Bergman is known for his humor and gift for inspiring audiences. Learn more about the play and about Steve Bergman at billwanddrbob.com and samuelshem.com.
