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.
