Winner! 1934 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
This celebrated play deals with the medical profession, with the doctors and nurses who consecrate themselves to the Hippocratian ideal, and with a young doctor's initiation into the rigorous realities without which the profession of medicine cannot maintain its high ethical level. In highly dramatic and exciting terms, Mr. Kingsley develops the conflict between the doctor and his fiancée to the tragic consequences of the doctor's attempt to mix worldly things with his duty. No other offering of the season elicited such unanimity of praise.
