About The Doctor

First, do no harm. On an ordinary day, at a private hospital, a young woman fights for her life. A priest arrives to save her soul. Her doctor refuses him entry. In a divisive time, in a divided nation, a society takes sides. The latest smash-hit by “Britain’s best director” (The Telegraph) is a "provocative, wonderfully upsetting" (The Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and identity politics, "one of the peaks of the theatrical year" (The Guardian) and a "devastating play for today" (Financial Times). Please note: This show includes the discussion of suicide and the description of suicide methods. Age Recommendation: 14+
