Sell-out play about maverick Hungarian doctor Ignaz Semmelweiss, one of the 19th Century's greatest doctors whose research saved the lives of many millions of mothers during childbirth.
After a "smash hit" (Daily Mail) sold-out run at the Bristol Old Vic, the "beautifully bold" (The Times) production opened in the summer of 2023 at the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre.
The play starred Mark Rylance in the title role. Jason Hogan was the understudy to 3 of the main roles, Franz Arneth, Jakob Kolletschka and Ferdinand von Hebra.
The "compelling new drama" (The Telegraph) was directed by Tony Award winning Tom Morris who won Best Director for War Horse on Broadway.
