    Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson delivers “one of the performances of the year” (Evening Standard) in Robert Icke’s sold-out, five-star Almeida Theatre production, nominated for The Olivier for Best New Play and Best Actress.

    Achieving an Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Director for Robert Icke and a Critic’s Circle Award for Best Actress for Juliet Stevenson at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, this sensational production comes to Duke of York’s Theatre from 18 April.

    First, do no harm.

    An ordinary day, a girl is dying, a Priest arrives. 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), freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s Professor Bernhardi, is "provocative, wonderfully upsetting" (Independent), "one of the peaks of the theatrical year" (Guardian), a "devastating play for today" (Financial Times). 

    Please note: This production features bright, flashing lights and strobe.

    Content Warning:
