Medical Readers Theatre

"The story for this semester is “The Doctors of Hoyland” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted for Readers’ Theater by Greg Watkins. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, best known for his Sherlock Holmes mystery stories, was a physician who practiced for a number of years in the 1890s. During that time period, he wrote a book of short stories about medicine, which included “The Doctors of Hoyland.” In this story, Conan Doyle takes a look at how a lone small-town male physician reacts when he learns the new doctor in town is a woman and the anguish he experiences over gender issues. Although a somewhat dated story, this one still usually opens up discussions of gender and other bias issues."
