About Dr Semmelweis

Sonia Friedman Productions and the National Theatre present the Bristol Old Vic Production DR SEMMELWEIS by Stephen Brown with Mark Rylance.

Based on an original idea by Mark Rylance, developed at the NT Studio.

***** (The Sunday Times) Mark Rylance stars as the real-life 19th century maverick doctor Ignaz Semmelweis, whose revolutionary discovery will save countless new mothers' lives - if he can convince the very medical establishment it incriminates. Following a “smash hit” (Mail on Sunday) run at Bristol Old Vic, this “compelling new drama” (The Telegraph) comes to the West End this summer

June 28th, 2023
