Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering sex therapist. From fleeing the Nazis to Jerusalem where she became a sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mom newly-arrived in America, Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman’s untold story. The play is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of the girl who became “Dr. Ruth,” America’s most famous sex therapist. Mark St. Germain is the author of Square One favorites, "Camping with Henry & Tom" and "Freud's Last Session".
"Dr. Ruth's story is certainly a stirring one and this is an illuminating portrait."
