This weekend, Robert Icke won the esteemed 65th Evening Standard Theatre Award for the The Doctor, ahead of it’s West End transfer in 2020.
Picking up the award for Best Director, a joint award for The Doctor and his production of The Wild Duck at the Almeida in 2018, he said:
“I’m delighted to have received this award this evening and equally delighted that we are taking The Doctor not only to the Adelaide Festival but on a short UK tour. …taking work beyond London is vital and I am therefore thrilled that many more people will have access to this production and to Juliet’s luminous performance.”
His sold-out Almeida production of The Doctor will travel to Australia for the 2020 Adelaide Festival, as well as enjoying a limited run at the Theatre Royal Bright and Richmond Theatre before extending its run at the Duke of York’s Theatre with an additional ten performances from 18 April until 18 July 2020.
Olivier Award-winner Juliet Stevenson will continue to star as Professor Ruth Wolff, a doctor who finds herself in the middle of a media storm after she refuses to allow a priest to administer last rights to a young girl dying from a self-administered abortion.
