[Poster] The Doctor 18876
27 September 2022 - 11 December 2022

Juliet Stevenson stars in Robert Icke's blistering production of The Doctor, based on the 1912 play Professor Bernhardi by Austrian writer Arthur Schnitzler, which transfers to the Duke of York's Theatre in London. The play, which received critical acclaim when it opened at the Almeida Theatre, enjoyed a sold-out run at the North London theatre. Set in a London hospital, the play focuses on Professor Ruth Woolf, a senior physician who is treating a young patient with sepsis when a priest is sent by the girl's parents to deliver the last rites. This poses a huge moral dilemma for the doctor, which erupts into a national scandal.Juliet Stevenson reunites with director Icke after their previous collaborations on plays such as Hamlet and Mary Stuart, both productions for the Almeida which ultimately transferred to the West End. Stevenson, who has also previously appeared in Happy Days, Private Lives and The Heretic, plays the central character in a performance LondonTheatre.co.uk described as "mesmerising".Schnitzler's original play is rarely seen in London - one recent production was at the fringe venue the Arcola Theatre in Dalston in 2005. While it was first performed in 1912 at the Kleines Theater in Berlin, it was banned in the author's native country until the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918. Icke's new version modernises the play, setting it in a contemporary hospital, while also posing questions about human's innate views on identity, perception and bias.
