Is There a Doctor in the House?

Comedy by Tim Kelly


"If Moliere could see this Western farce of his medical plays, he’d laugh himself silly!  Lucy Canary, the mayor’s daughter, loves Lester Goodbe, a likeable cowboy.  But Lucy’s father insists that she marry Otis Lackginger, a rich, old coot with one foot in the grave.  Lucy pretends to lose her voice to stall the marriage, so everyone goes on a search to find a doctor to cure her.  And what a passel of phony medics they find!  Each quack physician is devoted to the Grease Gulch Hippopotamus Oath — “If you can’t convince ’em, confuse ’em.”  And this they do with rapid-fire jokes, sight gags, and slapstick comedy!  The climax is the funniest operation scene ever witnessed — the doctors take it all out and then put it back!"
