★★★★★ “Juliet Stevenson… one of the performances of the year” Evening Standard

Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson is “utterly magnetic” (The Times) in The Doctor, Robert Icke’s five-star West End production.

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” (Telegraph) is a “provocative, wonderfully upsetting” (Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and identity politics, “one of the peaks of the theatrical year” (Guardian) and a “devastating play for today” (Financial Times).

Originally set for a sell-out in London’s West End in the Spring of 2020, and following a sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre, The Doctor visits Bath prior to a triumphant return to the Duke of York’s Theatre later this Autumn.

Juliet Stevenson is one of Britain’s leading actors. She has worked extensively for the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and the Royal  Court, winning an Olivier Award for her performance in Death and the Maiden and being nominated on four other occasions. She last appeared in Bath sharing the roles of Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I with Lia Wiliams in Mary Stuart.

Robert Icke’s version of 1984 was a smash-hit in the West End and on Broadway. His recent adaptation of Animal Farm was a sell-out success in Bath, delighting audiences and critics alike.
