The Doctor
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson delivers "one of the performances of the year" (Evening Standard) in the West End transfer of Robert Icke's sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production - from 20th April 2020 at the Duke of York's Theatre.

First, do no harm.

On an ordinary day, at a private hospital, a young woman fights for her life. A priest arrives to save her soul. Her doctor refuses him entry.

In a divisive time, in a divided nation, a society takes sides.

The latest smash-hit by "Britain's best director" (Telegraph) is a "provocative, wonderfully upsetting" (Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and identity politics, "one of the peaks of the theatrical year" (Guardian) and a "devastasting play for today" (Financial Times).

ALMEIDA'S PRODUCTION OF THE DOCTOR TRANSFERS TO THE WEST END (24 SEPTEMBER 2019)

Robert Icke's Almeida Theatre production, The Doctor, will transfer to the Duke of York's Theatre from 20 April to 11 July 2020, with press night on 29 April. Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson will reprise her role as Professor Ruth Wolff.

Juliet Stevenson said:
"I am beyond thrilled that The Doctor is transferring to the West End. We have been blown away by the extraordinary response it has had at the Almeida. I think the play speaks to our current times with eloquence, complexity, humour and compassion - and I am so delighted it will have a future life and reach new audiences. It is a joy to be part of, and I am so grateful to Robert Icke, the company, and to those who are making it possible for us to keep it alive and kicking into 2020."

The Doctor, by Robert Icke, very freely adapted from Professor Bernhardi by Arthur Schnitzler, has designs by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting by Natasha Chivers, sound and composition by Tom Gibbons and casting by Julia Horan. Further casting is to be announced in due course.

This is the third West End transfer for Robert Icke and Juliet Stevenson in as many years, following the critical and commercial smash-hit productions of Mary Stuart and Hamlet. The production completes its run at the Almeida Theatre on 28 September 2019.
