About The Doctor

Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson 'delivers one of the peak performances of the theatrical year' (The Guardian) in the West End transfer of Robert Icke's sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production.

★★★★★ 'The play of the decade' The Times

★★★★★ 'Juliet Stevenson is riveting' The Telegraph

★★★★★ 'A profound argument against absolutes' The Guardian

Don't miss this ★★★★★ play in the West End until Sun 11 December only.

The Doctor matinees begin at 2:30pm and The Doctor evening performances begin at 7:30pm.

The Doctor runs for 2 hours and 45 minutes, including an interval.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if you want to see an incredibly intense discussion on identity and ethics, with some fantastic acting performances.

Don’t see it if you're looking for something unchallenging and lighthearted. This proved an very difficult watch, though for all the right reasons.

More information about The Doctor

Robert Icke’s The Doctor play raises questions of identity, religion and perception in a modern-day society. The play also reunited Icke with lead actress Juliet Stevenson. Together, they’ve worked on London plays such as Hamlet and Mary Stuart, coincidentally all shows opened at the Almeida Theatre.

Juliet Stevenson reprises her Olivier Award-nominated turn as Professor Ruth Woolf in The Doctor. Christopher Osikanlu Colquhoun, Mariah Louca, Daniel Rabin, Naomi Wirthner and Hannah Ledwidge also return from the Almeida production to star in the West End transfer.

Enter the West End’s newest waiting room — the Duke of York’s Theatre — this autumn. The doctor will see you now. Book The Doctor tickets in London on TodayTix.

What to Watch For:

  • Arthur Schnitzler’s 1912 drama, Professor Bernhardi, was banned when it was first published. The pre-World War One drama was banned when war broke out, and was later allowed to be staged after the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918.
  • Director Robert Icke often adapts contemporary texts. He’s previously worked on adaptations of Oresteia, 1984, and The Crucible. He served as associate director at the Almeida Theatre from 2013 to 2019.
