Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson is “utterly magnetic” (The Times) in The Doctor: the West End transfer of Robert Icke’s sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production from 29 Sep 2022 at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
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" (Independent) whirlwind of gender, race and identity, "one of the peaks of the theatrical year" (The Guardian) and a "devastating play for today" (Financial Times).
