OSWEGO The Oswego Players have begun rehearsals for its July production of “The Man Who Killed The Cure” by Luke Yankee.

Inspired by the work of Dr. Max Gerson, one of the pioneers into natural treatment methods for Cancer and other diseases, the production will run weekends July 12-21, 2024 at the Frances Marion Brown Theater at Fort Ontario in Oswego, NY.

Friday and Saturday night performances are at 7:30PM, with Sunday matinees at 2PM. Tickets are $15 for adults, $11 for seniors, and $10 for students and may be obtained by calling the Players’ box office at (315) 343-5138, or by clicking on the link at https://oswegoplayers.org.

When Max Gerson and his business partner, Rudolph Heller, escaped Nazi Germany, they had no idea what awaited them in New York. Rudy wanted the good life, treating his patients the traditional way. But when Max created an all-natural cure for cancer, the medical world felt threatened…not to mention his friend and colleague. Max was determined that the world should know about his findings, while the AMA and big pharmaceutical companies would stop at nothing to bury it completely. Inspired by true events in the life and death of Dr. Max Gerson, this gripping and controversial story delves into a world of medicine where the end goal is not healing, but profits.

The cast features the talents of Bill Cowham as Rudolph Heller, Simon Moody as Max Gerson, Megan Murtha as Helga, Tom Abrams as Carmichael, Rebecca Hill Kandt and Hannah Kandt as Charlotte Gerson, Christopher Best as Long John Nebel, and Jim Martin as Senator Claude Pepper.

The production is under the direction of William Edward White, who directed last season’s record-attendance and multiple TANYS-award-winning production of “The Last Lifeboat”, also written by Luke Yankee.

The Man Who Killed The Cure is presented by special arrangement with Yankee Hill Productions.
