The Cure


The Cure by Frederic Glover
Directed by George Cordes

The new play written by Canton, NY, playwright Frederic Glover and inspired by actual people
and events in Saranac Lake, NY, during the summer of 1936. A writer, Margaret, from New York City
is seeking “the cure” for her case of tuberculosis at the famous Saranac Lake health resort. Her story
intertwines with the life and struggles of Dr. Edward Trudeau, a driven, deeply compassionate man
who devoted himself to finding a cure for the dread disease during the late 1800s. The stories of
Margaret and Dr. Trudeau combine to celebrate the importance of community in healing and the
many sides of the natural world while emphasizing the struggle to transcend a deadly pandemic.

The Cure opens at the Arts Center and will tour to various schools and other venues through
the fall and winter.
