The latest smash-hit by “Britain’s best director” (Telegraph) Robert Icke’s sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production comes to Brighton this Autumn.
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.
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+
