The Doctor

Important Update: Due to Coronavirus Covid-19, theatres are currently closed. Shows are now booking from 1st June 2020.

Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson delivers “one of the performances of the year” (Evening Standard) in the West End transfer of Robert Icke’s sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production.
The latest smash-hit by “Britain’s best director” (Telegraph) is a “provocative, wonderfully upsetting” (Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and identity politics, and a “devastating play for today” (Financial Times). 

The Doctor is booking from 18 April 2020 until 18 July 2020 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

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.
