About the event

Mark Rylance “triumphs” (Daily Telegraph) in Dr Semmelweis,  an “urgent tale of scientific discovery” (Evening Standard), now  playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a strictly limited season. This “beautifully bold production” (The Times) directed by Tom Morris (War Horse),  follows maverick Hungarian doctor Ignaz Semmelweis – the man whose  research could save many millions of mothers’ lives. But what good is a  discovery that is ignored?

Following a sold-out run at Bristol Old Vic, “it’s surely not to be  missed” (Daily Mail), featuring live music by Adrian Sutton and original  choreography by Antonia Franceschi of Balanchine’s New York City  Ballet.

Based on an original idea by Mark Rylance.
