​First, do no harm.

“The last time director Robert Icke and Juliet Stevenson collaborated, it was on Mary Stuart at the Almeida. That play received rave reviews and went on to the West End - so hopes are high for this new project, based on the 1912 play ‘Professor Bernhardi’.”

“You should think of booking ahead for Robert Icke’s free adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s 1912 play, Professor Bernhardi, because there is nothing that Icke has done at this address that hasn’t been class. This is his final show before he goes off to direct a string of productions in Europe. Add to that a terrific cast lead by Juliet Stevenson and Ria Zmitrowicz and you can see why this Almeida swansong is likely to be as hot ticket.”
