Dona Croll stars in ‘The Doctor’


Doña Croll stars in new play ‘The Doctor’, which will go on tour for four weeks starting in Brighton on September 5th before beginning a West End run at Duke of York’s Theatre.

The play is based on Arthur Schnitzler’s 1912 drama, Professor Bernhardi. The pre-World War One drama was banned when war broke out in 1914, and was later allowed to be staged after the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918.

The original play explores the treatment of a woman who contracts sepsis after an abortion. Nearly a century later, Robert Icke’s contemporary version of The Doctor follows a similar story. This time, the story is set in north London and follows Professor Ruth Woolf, a senior physician who treats a young patient with sepsis. When a priest is sent by the girl’s parents to deliver the last rites, her doctor refuses, posing a huge moral dilemma, which erupts into a national scandal.

Doña Croll is joined by a cast of Juliet Stevenson, Christopher Osikanlu Colquhoun, Daniel Rabin, and Naomi Wirthner.

The Doctor runs from 5th – 24th September on tour and then 29th September til 11th December at Duke of York’s Theatre. Get tickets here.
