This sweeping epic is a two-part stage adaptation of the beloved and controversial John Irving novel that follows the life of Homer Wells, a precocious orphan who leaves his home and life-long tutor, Dr. Wilbur Larch, to explore the world and to find himself. Seven generations of rich characters in and surrounding the St. Cloud’s Orphanage in rural Maine grapple with ethical dilemmas of practicing medicine that seem pulled from today’s headlines.
