De Angelus

Dr Angelus

Finborough Theatre

A production commissioned by the Finborough Theatre, and rediscovering one of the West End’s most popular dramatists of the 1930s and 1940s. A classic psychological thriller, Dr Angelus draws on James Bridie’s own background as a doctor and the true life case of Dr Edward Pritchard, the last person to be hanged in Glasgow. Laced with gallows humour, Bridie’s surreal and sinister play asks what price the individual will pay if they speak out, and what is at stake if they do not.

Dr Angelus Synopsis: 

Glasgow, 1920. Earnest young doctor George Johnson has just been made partner in the medical practice of his eccentric senior colleague Dr Angelus. It seems like the perfect start to his career. When Dr Angelus’ treatment of his own mother-in-law results in her death, George remains fiercely loyal to his mentor. But as suspicions of murder multiply and the true nature of his partner is revealed, he finds himself caught in a web of deceit…

Presented by Robyn Bennett in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre.
