Medicine Men portrays the epic encounter between George Ohsawa and Dr. Schweitzer in Africa in the middle of the 20th century. The founder of modern macrobiotics had travelled from Japan to convince the renowned European philosopher, doctor and humanitarian of the value of traditional Oriental medicine and philosophy. To prove his point, Ohsawa contracted tropical ulcers, usually a fatal disease, and then proceeded to heal himself with diet. In Medicine Men, playwright Jack Harris-Bonham portrays the collision of East and West and the opposite cultural values that accompanied their meeting. In the character of Paul, and assistant to Dr. Schweitzer and a native healer, he also introduces the perspective of traditional African medicine. Medicine Men has been performed at Yale University and in New York and is a profoundly moving dramatic rendition of one of the pivotal events of our time.
