Is there a doctor in the house?

The Scene: The Main Auditorium at the London Festival Hall.

The Occasion: A charity concert for Jewish orphans being given by a famous Israeli pianist before a packed audience .

“Is there a doctor in the house?” she cries.

“Yes madam,” came the reply from several rows back, and a man gets to his feet. “I’m a doctor,” he says.

“Doctor !” beams the matron, “have I got a daughter for you !”
