A Play in One Act by Harold Brighouse.
Played by The Station Radio Players

Scene: The garden of an old house in a Brittany fishing village.
The village barber's reputation as a physician rests largely upon a professional manner and the credulity of his village patients. The arrival of a real doctor from Paris fills him with apprehension, since it must soon become clear that one of them is a charlatan. Jean does his best to advertise the doctor as a quack, but finds the newcomer is as well versed in human nature as in medicine; he is also very successful in cases of heart trouble!
