Event Details

A medical missionary who revered life
Written by Dr. Farokh E. Udwadia
A Staged Reading

An NCPA Presentation

This tribute explores the extraordinary saga of an extraordinary man, Dr. Albert Schweitzer. ‘Oganga!’ brings to life the journey of a man who forsook a comfortable life and felt impelled to live and work as a doctor in the jungles of Equatorial Africa, a man who offered unconditionally, a lifetime of service to the poorest and most wretched of his fellow human beings, with great compassion, humility and love. Remarkably, he was also a true Renaissance man, a theologian, a musician, a virtuoso organist, a prolific writer and author, a profound philosopher, but above all, a great humanist. This work, written by Dr. Farokh E. Udwadia, eminent physician and author, is a meditation on a life of selflessness, heroism, sacrifice and above all, universal love for all God’s creation. Interspersed with Bach’s compositions, this is also a work where the love of music that binds the two good doctors— the subject and the writer—comes
alive onstage.

Starring: Jim Sarbh
