Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson “‘delivers one of the peak performances of the theatrical year” (The Guardian) in the West End’s The Doctor.
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.
Freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s Professor Bernhardi, The Doctor is a “provocative, wonderfully upsetting” (Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and questions about identity, “one of the peaks of the theatrical year” (Guardian), and a “devastating play for today” (Financial Times).
The Doctor includes discussion of suicide and the description of suicide methods. Age recommendation: 14+
