Jamie Parker to join the cast of The Doctor

About Robert Icke’s The Doctor
Robert Icke’s The Doctor was translated and freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s Professor Bernhardi. Icke is popularly known for his modern adaptations of classic works; his adaptation of The Doctor brings the moral and political drama into the 21st century. The production won four WhatsOnStage Awards following its run at the Almeida Theatre in 2019 and is expected to be similarly received for its 2020 West End transfer.
The story follows a patient struggling to hold onto life on what seems like a day like any other. In an attempt to save the soul of the young woman, a catholic priest is determined to give her the last rites. However, Dr Wolff denies her entry into the room, which once the media hears about it, sparks a question on medical ethics.
