Tickets are available for the O’FallonTheatreWorks’ production of Bill W. and Dr. Bobon March 20-22 and 27-29. Based on the true story of two alcoholics who founded Alcoholics Anonymous, the play will be performed on the stage at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. Curtain times are 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Written by Sam Shem and Janet Surrey, the award-winning drama opens in 1929 with New York stockbroker William Wilson riding high on money and booze. But when the stock market goes under, he crashes with it, becoming an incurable drunk. An accidental meeting with Dr. Robert Smith, an alcoholic surgeon with a history of operating with a hangover, changes the game for both men when they become friends and agree to help each other stay sober.
