You could even take home a recipe for some legal moonshine. After all, it's in vogue these days.

The Best Doctor in Town

Meet the Cast

Be the first to experience our new play, The Best Doctor in Town, which will premiere in April 2018 at Spotlight on the Arts.

Set in Southwest Virginia and inspired by actual events, the play follows the story of the small town’s most revered doctor, who may just be an identity thief ​and serial killer. But a local police officer with a tarnished reputation, a reporter who manipulated facts and the doctor’s chief intern, who may be a thief, have pieces of the puzzle. All the while, patients are dying and no one in authority believes the great doctor could be responsible.

THE BEST DOCTOR IN TOWN will premiere as a fully staged production during the Spotlight on the Arts 2018 Festival in Fairfax, VA on April 21-22 and April 28-29, 2018.

The show will also tour to Big Stone Gap, Virginia over Memorial Day weekend 2018, the Keokee High School Reunion and the Appalachia Cultural Arts Center over Labor Day weekend and the Lee County Tobacco Festival in October.
