Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson delivers “one of the performances of the year” (Evening Standard) in Robert Icke’s sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production, nominated for The Olivier for Best New Play and Best Actress. Achieving an Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Director for Robert Icke and a Critic’s Circle Award for Best Actress for Juliet Stevenson at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, this sensational production comes to Duke of York’s Theatre from 18th April.

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"devastating play for today" (Financial Times).
