Following a sold-out and much-lauded run at the Almeida Theatre, Robert Icke’s The Doctor has transferred to London’s Duke of York’s Theatre for a 3-month run this year. Tickets for **The Doctor**’s Almeida run and originally scheduled West End transfer were in extremely high demand and the current transfer looks to be the same. Do not miss your chance to see Juliet Stevenson in this daring 5-star role.
Robert Icke’s The Doctor in London
Translated and freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s Professor Bernhardi, Rober Icke’s The Doctor brings this morally, politically and personally fraught drama into the 21st century.
Ruth Wolff (Juliet Stevenson) is The Doctor, a practitioner at the top of her game heading a private clinic that specialises in finding a cure for dementia.
On a day much like any other, a patient is struggling to hold on to life. A catholic priest is intent on giving the young woman the last rites in an attempt to save her soul, but Dr Wolff, convinced she must ‘first do no harm’ denies him entry to her room.
When the media get wind of this, personal politics, and religion are called into question and social media has something to say about medical ethics. This ‘devastating’ new play calls into question everything you think you know or believe about gender, race and identity.
Cast and Creatives of The Doctor Duke of York’s run
Olivier award-winning actress Juliet Stevenson reprises her role as Dr Ruth Wolff in the Duke of York’s transfer. Stevenson has been nominated for multiple Olivier Awards for her work in Measure for Measure, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and Duet for One.
