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).
