Jennifer Dubedat (The Doctor’s Dilemma) Jennifer Dubedat is the beautiful character who provokes the title problem for Sir Colenso Ridgeon, in George Bernard Shaw’s 1906 play, The Doctor’s Dilemma, when she implores him to help her tuberculosis-stricken artist husband. The dilemma is that Sir Ridgeon, who has lately been knighted for his cure for this selfsame illness, must decide who is eligible to enter his very limited clinic for treatment. The rich or the needy? The most likely to thrive or the hopeless case? Friend or foe? Or – perhaps – the husband of a lovely young woman with whom the doctor is falling in love- or perhaps not? Jennifer is in love with her husband (who is hardly worthy of such devotion, sick or not – he is an amoral, self-centered adulterer); she is an entirely sympathetic creature. Who can blame the good doctor? Well, Shaw can, and so can we. In his satirical treatment of the omniscience and pomposity of the medical profession, Shaw takes no prisoners. At day’s end, we are on Jennifer’s side, and we wish for her a man who will be worthy of her considerable charms. Certainly no man in this play is.
