Doctor Versus Family

Doctor Versus Family

Almeida Theatre · 02 SEP - 02 SEP

The family of a terminally ill baby contest the doctors’ decision to withdraw life-sustaining ventilation.

Overview

Parents take a hospital to court for the right for their son to undergo experimental treatment for his rare genetic condition.

Against the advice of doctors, a woman carrying conjoined twins refuses an operation to save only one twin, due to her belief in the sanctity of life.

Inspired by Robert Icke’s The Doctor, the Almeida Questions panel explores the ethical conundrums at heart of medicine.
