About The Doctor

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).
